We are having the time of our lives! Right now we are in town (Charlottesville, VA) at a laundromat washing our dirty duds. We started out on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina, our first stop to camp was Mount Pisgah National Park. It was a really nice place (with a shower!!) to camp. That is where we discovered how much Claire likes hiking. Who wouldn't like to hike like that?
They also had quite a few beautiful waterfalls. LOVE.
Monday we visited Biltmore. AMAZING! Did you know that kids 9 and under get in free? Yep, all of our kids got in free. Score! We made a day of it and the kids loved it! When we got back to camp Monday night we decided to move on, we packed up camp, like ninjas, and within an hour we were on the road Headed for Shenandoah National Forest. We pulled in sometime between 3 and 4 Tuesday morning.
Our home for the next day or so is Loft Mountain National Park, our camp is just a few yards from the Appalachian Trail! I have to say, the campground here is awesome, each site has it's own little yard. The kids love it. I took a 5 minute shower this morning for $1! Ha! Yep, there are only a couple of pay showers, but I'm grateful for them!
Did I mention the view? God Really out-did himself here...There just aren't any words...
I have NO IDEA where we may go next! And to tell you the truth, I don't even care! We feel like a whole new world has been opened up for us. I love waking up everyday knowing that we will remember that day for the rest of our lives! I hope to check-in again soon, but if I can't, I'll be back in 8 days! xo, Sam
