Ambling at Ijams

A walk around South Knoxville's Ijams Nature Center on a gray afternoon yielded a few photographs. I hope to go back soon and fully explore the relatively new section of the center that surrounds an old quarry.

Almost the very top of the Tennessee River.

The boardwalk.

Ijams is a quiet, beautiful place in the middle of a busy urban area. While enjoying the park, one is quick to forget that it lies on a major commercial waterway, and is bounded by industry, busy roads, residential development and a nearby airport: A diamond in the rough, as they say.
