Christmas on the Trail

IMG_4110We started on the trail and came upon this tree. It had about 15 ornaments and some red garland and gold garland. I think I will take an ornament on my walk tomorrow to add to the tree.IMG_4149The beautiful red berries on the bushes are natures decoration. IMG_4135These lovely little flowers decorated the path.IMG_4130This Hairy Woodpecker was busy at work. IMG_4146Whoops something is wrong with the picture.

I will try and get some photos of some more of it. Anyway, then there is this tree….IMG_3867this tree sticks its tongue out at me every time we pass it. To continue our walk, we decided to go off trail, on a very safe looking trail. IMG_3868Oh whoops before we went off trail we spotted a turtle.Now off trail, IMG_3874this is where we went. It went along the railroad track. IMG_3875It ends out here….IMG_3879In the neighborhood. which way should I go?

Sprig Restaurant and a new trail, who knew?

IMG_3794So, I went to Sprig Restaurant for lunch, it was so very good! I had the veggie plate. Veggie PlateCollard greens, spinach and mashed potatoes with corn bread. It was awesome. Service could not have been better. SprigGreat comfy bar too! I really liked the feel of this place. Then going out to my car I noticed this,IMG_3799Frazier Rowe Park, right nest to this restaurant, a trail. IMG_3802It took about 15 minutes to walk and I was deep in too.IMG_3800It was well marked and a fun little hike, but how many more of these are out there? It is so fun!

IMG_3809This was on the bridge. Well I have to go walk now. Searching for a new trail.

A New Trail to The Four Seasons Food Truck

This was a concrete trail, in midtown Atlanta.IMG_3724I parked in a parking deck, where the CB 2 (Crate and Barrel 2) resides. IMG_3740Then out to the street, Crescent Avenue. This is a road of really good restaurants. IMG_3739     IMG_3735     IMG_3732     IMG_3728     IMG_3727

Then on to the Four Seasons Hotel. IMG_3713This is a beautiful hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The Food Truck was in the parking lot. IMG_3699They started their trip on September 15th and they will be in Atlanta all week. I had the Savannah Crab Cake Sandwich with Cheesy tater tots with green onions. My first bite of the sandwich I was kinda like it’s okay, but two more bites into it, it was delicious. I ate the whole thing.  IMG_3707You have to go and try this and let me know what you think! IMG_3722Just a lovely hike!

A cool place to sit. Then there is Olivia’s trail.Olivia's TrailWho is Olivia and where is the bridge at the end of her trail? Coop and I had to jump the creek. It was an awesome hike. Let me know if you know who Olivia is and why?

It starts at Cheshire Bridge Road and ends at LaVista, or vice versa.Coop on trailCoop really likes this trail.Coop in cool shotThe trail goes along the creek and the expressway, so as far as peaceful, not so much.Bridge 5Cool bridge crosses the river. water 1It’s about a mile long.End of TrailThis is where it ends or begins!

Wow Morningside Nature Preserve!

IMG_3615I have to be honest, when I first got here I had my doubts.IMG_3614This was part of the beginning view. Hmm, I am not sure how great this is going to be, but boy was I wrong! IMG_3622Happy to get going.IMG_3623It is a spectacular trail in the middle of the city. IMG_3626It actually turns into a real trail. With a cool bridge.IMG_3630Right in the middle of it. Then it ends here.IMG_3638So, you have to go back.IMG_3639This was one of my favorite places I have found yet. IMG_3633Have you been here?
