... impressed. We relaxed at the campsite for a little bit, then headed into Boone and had dinner at Coyote Kitchen. Josh had gone to school at Appalachian State and was very familiar with the Boone area, so he suggested this restaurant.

... Park for our next real waterfall - Hebron Colony Falls. Although we had visited this waterfall before, I had forgotten my camera so this would be a good opportunity to go back and get some pictures.
