  • Mead’s Quarry Lake

  • Rock Climbing

    I recently had the opportunity to enjoy rock climbing. No, not using ropes and carabiners. Rather, this was more of an adventure climbing within an old quarry, located at the Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. It was definitely a good workout, and I’ll provide more photographs in the days ahead.

    Thanks for stopping by!
