Short Trip

Took a short 55 mile trip in Western TN yesterday. Thought I'd share a few pics.

Here's Lake Graham in Jackson, TN



Pinson Mounds



All three of us had V Stars!

That's what I asked...

"Prehistory:

Pinson Mounds is the largest Middle Woodland period mound group in the United States, and dates to about 1-500 A.D. The Native Americans that built the mounds lived long before historically known Native American tribes, and used the site for ceremonial purposes. The largest mounds were used for various ceremonies, while a few of the smaller mounds, as well as the Twin Mounds, held burials. A number of cremation and activity areas have been found nearby."

Thanks for the pics - it looks like it was a nice ride.


They have mounds in Staten Island NY also. But they capped them and you're not allowed to dump there anymore.

Thanks for the comments guys and gals. I love taking pictures, so be prepared to be bombarded with threads of my rides... maybe I'll just keep them in this thread to keep the board clean.
