To celebrate our seven years of wedded bliss (it's usually bliss at least), Noelle and I, along with Sierra headed over to Knoxville to do a little exploring. Our first stop was the very interesting Ijams Nature Center. We got our bearings and bought a trail map, then ate a snack in the car before hitting the trails. Our hike was a short one, but we packed a lot of interesting sights into the short walk.
We began with a walk through the woods on the North Cove Trail.
From the River Trail we hiked back to the nature center on the Tower Trail. We saw the beautiful bloom of a Passionflower along the way.
