Walk across Memphis

Starting off near the Germantown border.

Lunch at R.P. Tracks after a swim.

On Central.

Pit stop.

One more pit stop in midtown.
Coming into downtown via Union.

Six friends set out to walk across Memphis this Sunday. I must admit to taking the lesser camera and walking, not photographing, becoming my chief concern. 17 miles later, here are some shots.

The stats:
  • About 17 miles
  • Start time-8:30 am
  • End time-5:30 pm
  • Break time-between 2-3 hours total (including a much needed swim)
  • Temperature-above 90 degrees most of the walk
  • Found objects-not as much as expected, but included Mardi Gras beads, lug nuts, pennies, and bolts.
  • Inspired by these guys.


  1. You should write a song about walking in Memphis.

  2. Ah...the Corps of Discovery! Way to go guys....

  3. congrats on your accomplishment!
