Nolichucky Trestle

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Active pony plate trestle over the Nolichucky River in Unicoi County.  The decolorized photo has an infra-red effect added.  Original image shot with an Olympus XZ-1, f2 at 1/500.  ISO 400 equivalent.

Why is it pronounced “tressle” instead of “trest-le”.  Well, like “pestle”, “hustle”, “wrestle” and many others, it just is.  Received pronunciation, apparently.
