Shelby park

Today I went down there to find the trees.  When I was younger there was hill, it rose above the lake.  They kept it mowed, so it was easy to walk up and look at the trees.  Some of the trees had dates curved into them from the early 1900's.  I assume it was a lover lane back in the early 1900's.  After the tornado tore through east Nashville, my friend who lived in East Nashville, told me the trees were gone.  I went up there after Tornado and found some of the trees still there.  

Today I went up there for the first time in several years.  They had let the area grow up bushes and young trees but no old trees.  I pushed through the undergrowth and looked for the trees I knew.  I couldn't find them, and I assume they are gone.  I like old graffti.  Like from the late 1800's and early 1900's.  They had cut trails in the area but none that were close to the trails or very big.  So I walked over to the spring.  When I was kid I remember my father telling me they watered horses at that spring.  Not much of spring their now Eventually I'll put up images from my walk about.
