snapshots from obed wild & scenic river national park, tennessee, usa:
even after living in knoxville for five years, i had never been to the obed national park. whenever we wanted to rendezvous with nature, the great smoky mountains national park was always the automatic go-to. michelle and her boyfriend mark came up from austin, texas to spend new years in knoxville with adam and me, and so that mark could do some climbing in the obed boulder field. adam and i couldn’t believe we had never been before, it was absolutely breathtaking, albeit a bit chilly. i really need to pay more attention to these things.
