may was a little bit of a crazy month, but christina, ryan, and i snuck in a hike at shelby farms park over memorial day weekend. shelby farms is the largest urban park in the country, and it is one of my favorite places in memphis. when i lived with my parents i would often run on the greenline or around the lake; there are miles of great trails running all through the park; starry nights is one of my favorite memphis traditions; there are a number of great festivals throughout the year; and the kitchen is a delicious place to grab a bite to eat when hunger strikes.
on this particular day, we opted to walk the chickasaw trail, a 2.75 mile paved loop that runs through the heart of the park. we had clear skies, moderate temperatures, and fairly empty pathways for most of our jaunt, and we enjoyed a nice little stroll on a sunday morning. below are some snapshots of our adventure.
