My Favorite Travel Companion



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I visited one of our favorite places -- the Smoky Mountains -- in December, and we stopped just inside the Townsend, Tennessee, entrance to the park to enjoy the river. I used Photoshop to create this line drawing of Betsy from a photograph taken at the river side.

I'm not sure what a line drawing involves, but it looks great!

Hi George, I like your new header with the snowing effect.

Have a nice day. My regards to you and Betsy.

this is a great shot of Betsy, when it first opened at first glance, i thought she was on a inner tube in the water, then i looked again and saw it is a big rock/stone/boulder.
