Brenda is a southern Latina living in Nashville, Tennessee, the Cherokee/Muscogee lands. My bikepacking adventure will take me to four beautiful state parks, starting with the Obed Wild Life and Scenic River, where the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye, and ending at Percy Priest Lake. In her own words, “Southern lands carry a history of violence on people, reclaiming the outdoors for BIPOC communities is a way to reclaim our future and reimagine our existence with these beautiful lands.” I am excited to document this journey, learn from the experience and bring others along to see the beauty of the southern United States.
