My job is a Compliance Inspector for the local electrical utility. I have to inspect poles and power lines. I was sent to a few locations the other day and one was a padmount transformer. This is a transformer that sits on a pad and the electric cables are underground.

Anyway, I had to drive way out in the woods to get to this transformer. It feeds a house quite a bit of distance from this transformer. When I got there, I was struck by how dark the woods were behind the transformer.

It was like the part in a Grimm Brothers fairy tale where they tell the kids "Don't go into the woods!" I can tell you right now, I wasn't going into those woods. The pictures really don't convey just how dark it was in there.

We met up with some equally crazy friends last weekend and did a pretty epic hike, longest to date for me, someplace in lower TN called "jacks river falls". It was beautiful. We hiked from sunrise to 8 pm (just over 22 miles) and crossed the river some 44 times. I slept well that night.

We went for a drive last week and found a cool old Catholic church. The church didn't cut it for pics, but the tree in front did. Check out the bark on this thing. I wonder how old it is.
