Radnor Lake Hike with Tracy

hiking at Nashville's Radnor Lake

Tracy and I have been friends for a while, and a few months ago — early fall or so, when the weather was still very pleasant for hiking — we tried to find a convenient time to meet at Radnor, but we couldn’t. Winter came, and we sort of let the whole “hey, let’s go hiking” thing fall by the wayside.

But Twitter helped us connect today! I am fairly new to Twitter; I signed up about a month ago and finally got around to letting Twitter farm my Gmail and Hotmail accounts for other Twitter members on Tuesday. It found 8 or 10 friends and gave me the option to add everyone else from my Gmail contacts who were not members.

Tracy V. was one of those friends, and she immediately joined upon receiving the standard invitation email. She noticed my hiking Twitter — I had Twittered only 20 minutes before that I was going hiking at Radnor Lake today. Tracy then Twittered that she wanted to hike at Radnor Lake today, too — so that’s how we ended up hiking on this beautiful day (Tuesday, March 11, 2008).

We met in the Granny White parking lot at 5pm and hiked the South Cove trail and the Lake Trail, so we went up just one of the two big hills. It was a great hike; we had a lot to catch up on, so we chattered away the whole time.

Our deer count was 7. We’ll hike again soon, I am sure.
