We left Saturday and went to Linville Falls! The leaves were beautiful, and during the day it was the perfect weather. We drove around looking for a place to camp and found a site at Linville Falls Campground. The first day we hiked up some of the trails at the falls....and then drove forever to find a grocery store to buy some hot dogs to grill. That night we made a fire, and froze! It was so cold. I'm glad we didn't wait any longer to go camping or we probably wouldn't have made it. It seems like we woke up every hour trying to adjust the blankets all around us and adding more clothing to stay warm. Sunday, we got up and went to Linville Caverns. We went on a field trip there together in middle school so it was fun to go and actually see it again. Afterwards, we went to Table Rock and hiked up. I don't think I realized how out of shape I am, bc this moderate trail really did me in. ( I'm gonna have to add some hills to my workout routine =D)I kept falling off the slippery wet rocks and having to stop and take breaks. I was pretty disappointed in myself, but finally made it to the top. The hike was well worth it for the beautiful view! Overall, we had a great getaway weekend. Thanks Audrey and Kyle for letting us borrow your packs and cool camping stuff....and thanks Mom and Dad for the tent and tarp!
