Ijams Nature Center In Knoxville, TN

Nature, Photography June 22, 2019

Yesterday I visited Ijams Nature Center, a 315-acre park along the Tennessee River in Knoxville. Originally a marble and limestone quarry in the early 1900’s, it’s been converted now to serve as an outdoor recreation area with Mead’s Quarry Lake and a network of hiking/biking trails. There’s also a stand for refreshments.

Enjoy your visit!

Interesting Geological Structure

Nature, Photography June 20, 2019

I photographed this interesting geological structure while hiking in Tennessee, at Piney Falls State Natural Area. Located on the ceiling of an overhang from a gorge-wall, these outcroppings represent the end result of erosion, where small amounts of water seeping through sandstone over time have deposited minuscule amounts of mineral – creating these downward structures – before succumbing to gravity; whereby a scattered array of indentations in the hardened ground may be observed.

Or, so it seems. I’m not a geologist, but do sell photographic prints at Pixels.

Drop by for a visit, sometime!

Piney Falls Gorge Trail

Nature, Photography June 19, 2019

Having observed that the gorge below Lower Piney Falls (Tennessee) wasn’t easily accessible, I hiked back uphill and sought to secure a path of descent further along the river. Alas, it was not to be. However, on this half-hour side excursion, I did have the opportunity to see some very interesting rock formations.
