See Rock City …

leave a comment »

You used to see these signs, ” See Rock City ” on the roofs of barns all over the south. But now days, it is very rare that you run across them and especially ones like this that look as freshly painted as this. I read an article years ago about the sign painter that traveled the south painting them on the roofs of barns next to major thoroughfares. They paid the barn owner a one time fee of $250 to let him paint See Rock City on the barn’s roof. We have been to Rock City several times and my favorite part was “Fat Man’s Squeeze” … you had to squeeze between two boulders to get to the another area of the park or you had to walk a block or two around the boulders. Luckily, I have been able to get through. Sometime in the future, I am sure we will take Lukas and Payton to See Rock City!

Nothing has been done to this image, other than adding a blue gradient to the sky to intensify the color a little.
