This was a great day of cruising, the kind you dream of when envisioning the Great Loop.
As we entered Guntersville Lake, I noticed that the shores are littered with boat houses! Every home has one and they run from simple boxy structures to elaborate buildings that are architecturally matched to the homes. The water level here must be stable or investing in these wouldn't make sense. No need here for elaborate boat lifts or cradles on rails up the hillside.

|Very beautifully done!|

|A 1200 foot plateau|
The South Pittsburg highway bridge is particularly interesting because it is suspended by an arch. The navigation span is 730 feet which is the largest of any bridge on the Tennessee. Engineers can be very creative.
