radnor lake: nashville hiking meet-up

well, so i joined the nashville hiking meet-up group while g was off at boy scout camp.  i thought it would be a fun way to motivate myself to get out and see some new parks in the area and take more wildflower pics.  well.  it was fun, i hiked with some lovely people, and i did see a new to me park, radnor lake.  the flower pics, however, are sparse, as in one, but i did learn that bee balm grows wild in tennessee.  friends.  i need to tell you that if you're looking for a good workout in the area, this is it.  we were speedwalking straight up a mountain.  i didn't dare slow down for more than a second to take a pic for fear that i wouldn't be able to catch back up, and i was drenched in sweat when we finished.  the blur you see in the third picture down is an indication of our pace.  we did stop for a minute to enjoy the baby turkeys, but by that point i think i was huffing and puffing too much to have a steady hand to press the shutter button.  so yea.  not such amazing photos, but a good memory and a solid accomplishment for me.  :)


  1. It's been quite a few years since I hiked Radnor. Does the trail still smell like Christmas trees? They used to mulch the trees and spread it on the paths.

  2. Beautiful country. Love your photos!
