Comb graves, France Cemetery, Calfkiller Highway, White County, Tennessee. Members of the Carmichael and France family rest beneath the vernacular comb graves indigenous to the Western Highland Rim and western escarpment of the Cumberland Plateau. Constructed of sandstone from the Hartselle Formation, these interments date from 1858 to 1881, with the majority falling between 1861 and 1864. The earliest graves of this form are found in Tennessee and date prior to 1820. Although grave covers of this type are documented in other states containing areas which are culturally part of the Upland South, Tennessee's 424 comb cemeteries outnumber the combined cemeteries of this type found in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Texas, West Virginia and eastern Oklahoma. White, Putnam and Overton counties have the highest concentration of these graves. #gravestones #gravestoneart #tombstone #combgraves #cumberlandplateau #highlandrim #tennesseehistory #sandstone #uppercumberland

1889 Date (and signature) in Howell Signature Cave, White County, Tennessee This date was associated with the signature of Samuel Howell. The signature and date wrapped around a bend in the rock in a confined area making it difficult to photograph both together. #history #highlandrim #spartatn #WhiteCounty #Tennessee #anthropology #ImNeverLostImJustCollectingData

Allie Ibarra, Armours Cave, Overton County, Tennessee This is a newly described cave for Overton County, Tennessee. Three entrances, mostly low wet passage, biologically diverse, and about 1000' long. We documented this a few weeks ago and came back with @cavemander17 to assess the biology situation and to fulfill Black Friday (so called because we cave on this day). I took this opportunity to take some photos in the cave. #overtoncounty #livingston #tennessee #highlandrim #geology #limestone #karst #nsscaves #caver #biology #optunderground #optoutside #blackfriday

"Seeds in general can represent fecundity and fruitfulness as per their nature- but walnuts in particular are a potent symbol of masculinity. ...Walnut's three most potent meanings are of sexuality and toughness - and even though all nuts can be reminiscent of manhood, walnuts in particular are 'the manliest nuts" - Wiki Symbolism According to my Middle School girls, "nuts" is a four letter word. #walnuts #blackwalnut #outdoors #nuts #tentree #ic_trees #naturelovers #wilderness #wildernessbabes #lovenature #tennesseegirl #cowgirl #colorfulnature #color_n_nature #beautifulcolors #backpocketnature #onlytennisee #instagramtennessee #skygarden #horizonline #rollinghills #highlandrim #sunsetlovers #singlemomadventures #traveltheworld #vip_world_photo #lookup #landscapelovers #landscapehunter #photographysouls
