Very good! I thought that might be the case. Did I pass the test? Grinning.
My group 5 prints arrived and I finally had a chance to ogle them
Incredible work everyone, it's an honor to exchange prints with so many talented people.
The bonus prints were a wonderful surprise. Thank you Darr & Kav.
Dan was asking via PM about the location of the watefall in my photograph too. I started to write him detailed directions but then I had a stroke of genius to just google it, figuring someone had written directions already that I could copy. I was more than right. Directions here are spot on:
My parents house, where we moved when I was a freshman in high school is about 3-4 miles back down highway 91 toward Elizabethton from this site. Prior to that I grew up in Elizabethton proper so I know the area. I spent nine years (well, eight years and a few months) working as a TV transmitter engineer where I worked on the same mountain and drove right by this site every time I went to work (which was once a week on a 48 hour sleep over shift for several years, then three times when I became assistant transmitter chief and did a 24 hour shift plus two overnight maintenances - didn't pay much but was easy, relaxed and fun leaving lots of time off, good times!)

Most blest is he who lives free and bold
and nurses never a grief,
for the fearful man is dismayed by aught,
and the mean one mourns over giving.

Thank you Roger! I will make a point to find The Blue Hole the next time we go to Boone, NC.
Got mine from round four posted. It's cool to see the photos from the other rounds.
