Sunrise somewhere south of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn., along Leiper’s Creek Road. Getting up at 5 am on Saturdays to ride a bike is often rewarded with amazing sunrises and having the countryside to yourself.
Old train depot and general store, Watertown Community, not really near anything, Maury County, about 20 miles south of Leiper’s Fork. Watertown was a stop on the Middle Tennessee Railroad Company that ran from Franklin, to Leiper’s Fork, then on south all the way to Mount Pleasant, locates SW of Columbia. The rail line operated from about 1912-1928, when the growing number of automobiles put it out of business. The rail bed was torn up and turned into Leiper’s Creek Road, which is why that road is relatively flat and nestled between the two ridge lines that parallel it all the way down. #FromWhereIRide

My new, used ride at the trailhead to Mt Sunflower .... the highest point in Kansas at 4,039’. It looked to be a dusty hike with possible thunderstorms rolling in.
But, we made it, car to car, in just under one day.
The Southern Appalachian mountains are calling you to walk among them .... the ridges, the balds, the streams, clouds, fog, sunsets, sunrises, the trails, - GO -
