Not the best day for photography (too much contrast). Shots of an interesting project our company recently took on to find groundwater resources for several thousand acres of undeveloped land in TN. Developers want to build a self sustaining community here with over 3,000 homes, golf course, and "village stores". Because no town is nearby that can supply these needs, they will have to rely on tapping an aquifer. This was just the preliminary investigation to determine the best location for test wells. This land was rugged, with one way in and one way out. We had fun though using a heavily modified 4x4 (made for working not show).
