The sun is setting on the meandering Hiwassee River in
Reliance, Tennessee. Fall colors surround the old barn still used for
storing hay gathered through the summer. The antique spreader is almost
forgotten now, except perhaps for a covey of quail nestled beneath it's rusting
wheels that provide some shelter from the cool evening breezes. The past
is preserved for us once again, reflecting the many farming generations before
us throughout this beautiful valley.
