Blue Monday: Pickwick, August 8, 2016

Tennessee River at Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, August 1, 2016
Pickwick Dam (with the highway across the top) generates electric power. The structure on the far shore is a lock to let boats go through. It is a popular fishing area, and we often see tug boats with their barges on the river, too.

Have a happy day!

    1. Yes, Pickwick is one of a series of dams built by TVA on the Tennessee River to control flooding and generate electricity. Pickwick Dam was completed in 1938. Sad for those who lost their land when the lakes were created, but the lakes are popular recreation areas today.

  2. You showed us a beautiful piece of serenity today. Just beautiful.

  3. The TVA created a beautiful lake. We used to live in Clarkston Washington where the Army Corps of Engineers created a Lake from part of the Snake River (much later than yours)... it really changed things.

  4. Hello Lea, These are beautiful blues in these pics of the TVA dam which created such a lovely lake.

    Thank you so much for your faithful comments and linking to my Blue Monday posts while I was on vacation. I arrived home today... tired but very happy to have been with so much family these past two weeks. I am also happy to be visiting today.

    Have a great week.
