Last week, we went on another nature walk field trip with our friends, this time to Mead's Quarry in Knoxville. It was closed as a quarry in 2005 and turned into a park with nature trails.
The kids found gypsum in the ground.
There was an old cemetery at the top of the hill.
Near the end of the trail, which was a loop, there was a beautiful jungle of wisteria. I'd love to see it in bloom.
There are several trails of varying difficulty in the area, and it is located next to Ijams Nature Center.
