I slept better than I thought I would last night, I would konk out for a while then wake up to get my bearings before sleeping again. We hit a really bad rough section of road and then came the thunderstorm with limited viability. On the bus we learned about the general way the mountains are built and destroyed while also focusing on the areas we are aiming to see. It is weird to think about the mountains and how some are still raising ...

We stop at our first Cracker Barrel today for some lunch/dinner. Cracker Barrel is a country store and restaurant chain that is all over the U.S. They have good food at reasonable prices and usually have some neat things to pick up in their store. (Christmas is coming and I start now! Tee hee!)

It's still very hot so we walk to the water for a paddle to cool off. After a beautiful sunset, a couple of drinks, lovely dinner and our nightly slide show of the days events, its now time to sleep.
