A few weeks ago, Michael, Scarlett, and I took a trip north to Norris Dam. It was a perfect day for a hike along the Clinch River, and it had rained cats and dogs the day before, so we were both dying to get outside. You could already see the first signs of fall in some of the trees, and the weather was perfect. It is so nice to get out and have a chance to appreciate the beautiful places around us. We are very lucky to live in Knoxville because there are so many gorgeous places to explore all around us. I was very impressed with Norris Lake and the Clinch River to say the least.
