A couple of weeks ago I went to a company day out at the boss's farm. Not far from there lives my long time friend who has a tire changer. So, being a two bird guy, I strapped on the new rear tire so to get er done after "work". I got to my friend's place a bit early so I ran down the road to look at Newsome's Mill to kill a little time. Turns out it is a State Park, or rather a part of one: Harpeth River State Park. At first I thought I had enough for a "54" RR. Two things showed me I didn't 1) My cheap little camera has no drivers available for anything newer than Win XP so no pics and 2) There are actually 10 parts to Harpeth River State Park. So, today, I began anew with a better camera and better knowledge, so lets count em up 1 to 10. 1) Hwy 100 Canoe Access .. 36.053731 -86.9293 The Harpeth has a little more water this year, so great canoeing and kayaking. This little spot has some nice features. The last piece a bit of flood architecture: during the flood two years ago the water would have been about 20' over my head at this spot. Can't tell now. 2) Newsom's Mill Historical Site .. 36.07941 -86.99599 The original mills did not fare well against flood waters. Picnic tables, grills, the river.. nice little spot The stonework in the old mill is amazing. Some of the pieces are enormous. I believe this was all hand work (with help from mules). Mosquito, tick, chigger and cottonmouth trail. This is a tight single lane underpass you'll probably go through if you visit here. Be careful; people in cars are nuts.
