Spring break

I'm in Nashville for spring break, visiting my friends and revisiting my favorite haunts. I came just in time for a burst of unseasonably warm spring weather; the mercury is hitting 80 most days. It made for a beautiful hike to Walls of Jericho on Tuesday. This hike is down on the Alabama/Tennessee border; you start in Alabama and end up in Tennessee.

It was sunny and the first spring wildflowers were out - phlox and trout lilies, red trillium and may apples, and lots of other ones I can't name. I had never been to the Walls at high water before, and they were a beautiful site. It was worth coming down to Tennessee just to see it.
