Our family is now officially a tent camping, white water rafting, hiking, camp fire building, rock collecting, ruby mining, smores making, dutch oven cooking, bath house bathing crazy camp family ! Here's some pictures from our wonderful trip in the beautiful smokey mountains. I took 547 pictures, so I will post several times. Kinda like a southern baptist sermon - this is part 1.
We stayed at an old fashioned camp ground - Lost Mine Campground in Wesser, NC (near Bryson City). There was a perfect little stream that ran right behind our camp site. You could hear the stream rippling over the rocks and it just put us all right to sleep at night.
Chuck cooked a lot of our meals in a dutch ovens and on the trusty Coleman stove. We had Bar-BQ chicken, chuck roast with potatoes and carrots, rolls, peach cobbler, hot dogs, hamburgers, cinnamon rolls, pancakes,and eggs. There's nothing like eating and cooking outside. Everything tasted so good !!
The boys found these heart shaped rocks at one of the waterfalls on the Nantahala river. So cute !
We went white water rafting on the beautiful Nantahala River. For the most part, it is a calm river with the highest rapid being a category 3. We all managed to stay in the raft, but we almost all fell out on the last rapid, Nantahala Falls. The boys loved rafting the river and can't wait until the are old enough to raft the Ocoee River.
