we decided to take advantage of all this gorgeous february weather this weekend and head a couple hours away to do a little camping. by the time we collected all the gear we needed in the fall, it was too cold to go, so this was our first time to head out on our own.
so i have this thing about getting a little claustrophobic when i can't move my legs or toes (as in i might have kicked a cowboy boot across a store because i couldn't move my toes and i couldn't get the boot off which lead to me not being able to breath) SO when james got me this awesome mummy bag i told him there was no way i was zipping it up. ever.
yea well, when the temp hit the high 30's saturday morning, it didn't take long for me to zip that thing up and cinch it down around my face as far as it would go. i somehow survived. thank you james for springing for the good sleeping bag.
lesson 1 - charge the camera. good thing for iphones. lesson 2 - check out the campsite before you pay for it. we definitely got one right between the rv's. they were probably laughing at us while sitting in front of there heaters.
we packed up our stuff saturday morning and headed to a local restaurant for the breakfast buffet. we were totally roughing it here. then we were off to do some sight seeing
this waterfall is beautiful! apparently some of the scenes from the jungle book were filmed here and you can hike all the way down to it. it was a bit too cold for us to try, but definitely a fun spring trip.
we had a blast driving around the park
looking at the waterfalls and spotting deer (who weren't afraid of us at all) and turkeys
even the drive back to chattanooga is beautiful. we pulled over on the side of the road to snap this picture of the valley
and look what we found! james might not have carved it, but he said he means it :)
