These were seen on Bear Island on Percy Priest Lake, southeast Nashville, Tennessee. I was very surprised by the variety of wildlife we saw while we hiked around the island. Thankfully no bears, I feel like that needs to be said! 🙂
A few things we didn’t snag a picture of that you might want to note if you plan to visit or camp on the island: ticks, snakes, and spider webs… we walked through a million spider webs.
Over 2 hours later, and a lot of spider webs to the face, we finally found our kayaks. We refueled with food and water and rested… thinking about how far we had just walked. It was quite the adventure! If you go to Bear Island and want to hang out for a bit, bring bug spray, sandals (not flip-flops), and food and water, of course.
