Billed as “the 7th Largest Attraction in Tennessee,” the Loretta Lynn Dude Ranch features a recording studio, museums, lodging, restaurants, and replicas of her early “coal miner daughter” days.
We visited during the offseason - so most of the museums and stores were closed, and the RV park was close to empty. Still, it’s worth a trip outside of Nashville to see where Loretta Lynn lived for most of her career. The Plantation Home is also open to tours (although we skipped the formal tour).

The Unclaimed Baggage Center is a jewel in Scottsboro, Alabama. At about three hours from Nashville, it’s worth the drive for the experience. (And, if you’re a shopper, this is probably the end all and be all of bargain hunting.)
Here’s the story: if you lose a bag while traveling, the airlines spend 90 days trying to reunite you with your bag. In general, they are pretty successful - in fact 99.9% of bags find their owners.
But, when they don’t, the UBC purchases the bags - unopened - and then cleans, sorts, sells, donates, or trashes what they find.
They fill their 40,000 square foot warehouse to the top - and do so much cleaning at their onsite drycleaner that they estimate they do more daily cleaning than a Laundromat does in a year.
What they can’t (or won’t) sell, they donate to local charities.

Happy Veterans Day! We grabbed this photo in Grafton, West Virginia back in September. This mural was painted by Marty Mummert this past Memorial Day.

Welcome to our second work print roundup! As a reminder, the goal here is to share even more photos - even if they don’t fit nicely into a blog post or story format (yet). These photos might make it into our final portfolio, or they might not. They might show up in a blog post later when we realize they fit a story or a theme, or they might not. They might end up being sent out as prints or postcards, or they might not.
