Day 53 - Boat launch sign

Not real impressive - but I pass this boat launch sign everytime I go to town. Apparently it's maintained by the Jaycees.

Is that a lake? It's lovely with the hills on the far side...

It is indeed a lake - Guntersville Lake - 67,900 acres with 949 miles of shoreline. It occupies a valley with mostly steep, sloping mountain ridges. It is a man-made lake, created by Guntersville Dam on the Tennessee River (TVA) in 1939 and flooded in 1940.

It made Guntersville a peninsula and I see lots of lake when I go most anywhere.
