Ranger Keith points out a particular kind of shelf fungus (Polyporales) that is very dense and great for keeping as a glowing ember for primitive man transporting fire. Or, modern man pretending to be primitive?! LOL
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
