What’s happenin’ honeys? Good things I hope. Not much over here right now. I’m just catching up on some work. This morning MacGyver and I took a little break and may or may not have went to a few estate sales. I’ll never tell. Never mind those vintage pyrex to go baking dishes on the counter, I’ve had those things for years….
Now since I don’t want to leave you guys hanging I thought I would share with you little parts of my Tennessee trip over the next week or so and today I’m going to share with you the day I ran in the Seven Islands Birding Park.
In pictures of course because that’s how we roll on Fridays, lazy.
When I first started to run, two deer ran in front of me and then stopped. I told them to go on but one of them wouldn’t. I slowly walked up to him and stuck my hand out. At first he sniffed and then he licked it! That will NEVER happen again in a million years!
I have the worst sense of direction and I got a little lost a few times and had to double back because I wanted to take the longer trail by the river. It is very remote and hilly and I loved it.
You enter at a barn and my sister told me the turn around point was at the second barn so I was glad when I finally came upon this one. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to run through this one too but I didn’t. I ran around it.
And up this hill which was steep. The picture doesn’t really do it justice because this hill is super steep.
There is a viewing area at the trail head and you can see the river below.
This is a better view of the River. Okay, maybe not that better but were not finished yet.
It’s a little remote in spots but I didn’t mind. It’s also muddy and there are some brambles. Barkley Marathon practice y’all!
Besides, with views like this at the top how could you really be mad?
I loved this little spot. I am definitely coming back. I’m jealous this place isn’t right in my backyard. It’s times like this I really do miss Tennessee….
If you happen to hang your hat in Kodak, Tennessee even if for a minute, I highly recommend this place. It might even be good practice for the Barkley Marathons since only one person even finished this year and he was from the area. 🙂
What’s your absolute favorite trail?
