Where in the World is Smokey?

Visiting the Temple of Heaven in China

Linda Adams Gilreath, of Colliersville, earned her bachelor's degree from UT Knoxville in 1976 and completed her master's degree at UTK in 2003. Her son, Grant Gilreath, is a senior in Global Studies who is currently studying in China.

"I made a trip to Hong Kong, Chengdu and Beijing, China, to meet my son," she wrote in January 2008.

Her photos are of the Great Wall in China and the Temple of Heaven. The Great Wall is the world's longest man-made structure, stretching nearly 4,000 miles. The Temple of Heaven is a complex of Taoist buildings in southeastern Beijing. Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties came her for annual ceremonies to pray for good harvest.
