We drove back down the beautiful Skyline drive and went for a walk in the woods. The sun was shining, the new leaves green and radiant and rampant chipmunks running through the underbrush. Some pictures were attempted to be taken, but the little rodents just wouldn't stay still. We then stopped next to a gorgeous overlook and pulled out the collapsible table for a picnic lunch. As the children played, Jess and Tim planned the next couple of weeks. Suffice to say we will be attempting to bounce from National Park to National Park
Jess went for a walk back to the campsite and Tim and the kids went for a 3 mile hike to a waterfall and along the way spotted more deer and turned over creek rocks until we found a little salamander.
We also found our first tick hiding behind Lily's right ear. Yuck!!!!
Then it was back to our campsite for an afternoon cuppa, a play for the kids and then a relaxing evening with falafel for the grown-ups and mac and cheese and hot dogs for the kids. A nice night and up early for a pack-up and hit the road. We are heading south to South Carolina and Congaree National Park.
