Now that the smoke has cleared...

This view from Willow Spring Park shows the extensive damage to Buffalo Mountain caused by the recent forest fire. Some 1,500 acres were consumed in the fire. [click photo to enlarge]

While the Buffalo Mountain Park remains closed, if you live in the Johnson City, TN area, I'd recommend a visit to Willow Springs. Not only is it home to the city's dog park, but it's also the perfect place to go for a walk and take in beautiful mountain views, or to take the kids to the playground or to fly a kite.

Directions: From State of Franklin Road in Johnson City turn on West Walnut Street heading toward Jonesborough. Go 1.4 miles, turn left on Huffine Road and proceed 0.7 miles to the park on the left.
