Harpeth River State Park

hiddenlake_1511

While recuperating frtrashpile_1522om the Half Marathon, my husband and I walked a trail at the Harpeth River State Park only a couple of miles from our house. Here’s John looking down at Hidden Lake (he said that it is more like a pond) from a cliff. We had a great hike. It is always a special time for us to be on a hike together.

John thinks that the lake must have been a quarry, as we found a shack, an oil tank partially underground and the remains of a house or office. By the abandoned house, we found a trash pile, which was very old, except for the soda can in it. We think at one time, a farm or plantation must have occupied the land. We also found a bed of cactus.
