Just off a pathway in Oak Ridge Town Park.
- Trusty friend Charlie
Birdray plans to go at some point. Maybe a 4:00 meetup, maybe not. Anyone else?
I picked up my friend Charlie and off we went to the hashpoint via car. (My phone, of course, crashed part of the way there, so my tracklog starts in an odd sort of place, where we pulled off the road at a gas station.) We passed by approximately 80,000 churches before arriving at the park where the hashpoint was located.
We parked and followed the path a ways. To one side of the path were some birch saplings, with tiny birds flitting between the branches ahead of us as we walked. When we veered onto the field, the birds flew onto the field and joined a dozen more, and as we walked, the ones nearest us continually flew a little further on until there was a net of birds constantly rising and falling just ahead of us.
We stopped and did a series of little awkward steps to get as close to the hashpoint as we could. We took some pictures of the enthralling landscape of Oak Ridge.
We got back in the car and drove back to town.
