DEEP FREEZE 2014

To view the full gallery click HERE!

This has been a brutally cold winter here in Middle Tennessee. We have had lows BELOW zero and highs in the teens. Very unusual for us so I took the advantage to go and look at a usually active Percy Priest Lake…..not active today, JUST FROZEN

Here are some shots of Percy Priest Lake at Stewart’s Creek Boat Ramp on 1-29-14 .I have never seen the lake frozen this solid. The boats are sitting in ice. The lake is really low too as you can tell by the “waterless pier”

Barns (Urban Farm) 1-29-14

This barn is deceptive for being a quaint country barn.

One block away is a huge Embassy Suites and just down the road is Murfreesboro’s shopping spot called The Avenue and just across is Interstate 24. Pretty it may be, but quiet it is not!

ABANDON SHIP! 1-29-14

This “ship” was just sitting out in the open not far from Percy Priest Lake at Stewart’s Creek in Smyrna, TN.  It looks like at one time it might have been a nice boat.

Any salvagers out there?

Monteagle Sunrise (Monteagle, Tennessee) 1-20-14

If you are forced to drive to Chattanooga early in the morning you might as well stop and take in the sunrise. They are beautiful coming over the mountaintop.

Savage Falls 1-18-14

Savage Falls is a beautiful year round waterfall located in the Savage Gulf State Natural Area near Palmer, Tennessee. The Savage Day Loop is about a 4.5 mile loop that is just part of a connection of trails that span about 55 miles total.

There  are other falls in this park as well and it is also the home of the Great Stone Door, Fiery Gizzard and other fascinating places to hike to and visit.

It was cold today but that didn’t stop the five of us from the Murfreesboro Chapter of the Tennessee Trails Association from enjoying a wonderful hike and lunch laster at Logan’s Roadhouse in Manchester, Tennessee.

Thanks to Ann Jacobs for putting this together last minute and Ann Ford, Wayne Yancey and Sara Pollard for joining me on this adventure.

Cheeks Bend Bluff View Trail 1-11-14

To view the full gallery click HERE!

This was a great hike…short but sweet and it had all of my favorite things: waterfalls, caves, rock formations, strange trees–just a photographers paradise. Located at the Duck River Complex Yanahli Wildlife Management Area at Cheeks Bend near Columbia, Tennessee. There is about 2 miles of level hiking plus a small “cave” that goes about 75 yards back to the bluffs overlooking the Duck River. This trail is a trail that I helped build about seven years ago with other members of the TTA-Tennessee Trails Association.
