In the heart of the Appalachians

Johnson City is located in Eastern Tennessee close to the North Carolina border. The hills and mountains of the Appalachians surrounding the city are forest-covered. Johnson City has a population of about 50,000 and is home of the East Tennessee State University.

In November 2002 I spent one week in this city. I visited a good friend of mine who was a student at ETSU at that time.

Beside partying a lot, I made several nice trips to tourist attraction in the nearby region. E.g. I went to Asheville, North Carolina, rode on the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway and visited the Great Smokey Mountains National Park.
