Waterfall Hike

Most of the time we are camping, we try not to have too much planned. And most of our little adventures are just a walk from camp. But it is always kind of fun to plan one bigger outing and we planned it right in the middle so we could have slow relaxing days on either side of it!

It was a beautiful day for a hike! We've been here before but it is always a lovely time and the views and waterfalls are worth the time and incline!

I was reminded of my early hiking days in Colorado where we learned to take a step and lock your knee, take a step and lock your knee!

It was fun to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway on the way home and as you can see, the little boys were tuckered out!

For all these pictures, you'd think we were gone for two weeks when we actually only camped four nights! Just lots of beauty squeezed into those days! It is amazing how the days lengthen when there are less distractions: no internet, no phones, less responsibility.

Anyway, I'll finish our camping photos next week!

Moncia, those views are incredible. What a wonderful escape for a few summer days. I bet it would be beautiful in the Fall as well. Thanks for sharing. Your kids are getting so grown up. Hugs

Wonderful fun. It is amazing how life and time is different without distractions. I have been limiting my screen use and I have gotten so much done.

Monica, every summer I love forward to your camping trip and all the photos. They bring me joy and remind me of my own wonderful camping days. Glad you had a wonderful time and the weather was good.
