follow-up on Memphis

The MLK50 Conference was great! Hiking Memphis was not the hike I planned. I ended up doing an unprepared hike (no pack or bag) across the city. My intended address was the north end of a road and I was on the south end of the identical address. Once I paid for expensive downtown parking (at least it wasn’t NYC or Chicago!) my mistake of being on the wrong end of town became glaring.

So I hoofed it a couple miles. When done I acknowledge that the hike wasn’t so bad. Urban terrain is tougher than trails sometimes. The persistence paid off. I got there in time but out of breath. Along the way I saw Beal Street. Was wonderful.

Early spring hike

My buddy Mike and I hiking the easy on the feet loop trail at Robertsville State Park today.  Quite cool and overcast, but really an ideal spring day to hike. Lack of heat made exertion literally no sweat.
