I'm a lifelong naturalist and aspiring nature photographer. I've been exploring the Southern Cumberland region since 1980, and have lived in Marion County, TN since 1994. I've been a member of the Marion County Greenways and Trails Committee since 2006. Professionally, I work as a self-employed landscaper. My wife, Kim, is a fitness instructor. We live on the outskirts of Jasper, TN with our two dogs and three chickens.


The goal of this site is to be a comprehensive source of information about outdoor recreation and conservation issues, primarily in the core South Cumberland area in and near Marion County, TN and Chattanooga, but coverage includes other areas in the heart of the Southeast.
