Illustrated Travel Journaling

Susan Elizabeth Jones

Description:  Have you ever taken a walk in a spring meadow or ridden your bike on a country lane or any other outdoor experience that was so beautiful you wanted to capture it to savor at any time? The sights, sounds, and feelings of nature are awe-inspiring, and what could be lovelier than to preserve the moments of inspiration in a nature and travel journal?

Thomas Jefferson, Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Edison, Charles Darwin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Prince Charles are just a few who journaled. who kept nature- and travel-themed notebooks.  Peter Rabbit and all his furry friends were characters that emerged from Beatrix Potter’s nature journals.

Join Susan Elizabeth Jones at beautiful and historic Rippavilla in Spring Hill to spend the day exploring the gardens, historic cemetery, historic structures, “witness trees” and documenting the many treasures that will be discovered on this 98-acre estate that has been preserved forever through the Land Trust of Tennessee.
