Mom invited Claudia and me to join her on a hike the day after Thanksgiving. It was organized by her local chapter of the Tennessee Trails Association. It was a trail at Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park near Manchester, TN. See http://www.tennessee.gov/environment/parks/OldStoneFort/ for more information. It was pretty chilly out that morning -- 39F/3C. We had rain the day before Thanksgiving, so a lot of the pretty leaves had been knocked down by the rain.
I'm not broadcasting this post, but adding it so my South African friends can see how beautiful fall in Birmingham is. I really missed fall colors while I was in SA!
