Sometimes life events can cause you to divert from your intended path… eventually taking you down a different trail. It’s always a good feeling to get back out there and move forward again. In my case, getting back on the trail means getting back out in nature with my camera, which I did recently at Harpeth River State Park.
The park is just west of Nashville, Tennessee a few miles north of Interstate 40. It’s not a large park, but has a nice overlook which provides a good little aerobic workout to reach even though the trail is only a third of a mile. The trail climbs up a narrow sliver of land between two sections of the Harpeth River.
Taking the lower trail leads to the usual Montgomery Bell Tunnel, which was built in 1819 to power Bell’s iron foundry. Waterfalls are a love of mine and were my first photography subjects, other than my children. This manmade waterfall will have to be revisited when there is more flow and softer light. Still, it was an interesting location. And, it was nice to be back on the trail.
