A walk along the Bluff Lake boardwalk to see ibis and one really large gator. It's been years since I've visited the refuge and was nice to see it much as it was before. Watching the ibis move through the cypress trees and the gator swimming was really nice. https://youtu.be/eLa1gB4oW1I

Conasauga Falls Trail, Cherokee National Forest, TN. A half mile hike to a 30ft multi-tier waterfall on beautiful Conasauga Creek. It's a narrow gravel road to reach the parking area, but it's a beautiful walk downhill through a lush forest, with the sounds of the creek ever increasing.

It was a great little adventure!... Continue Reading →
