Fall Creek Falls
We had a great time at our family reunion at Fall Creek Falls State Park--near Pikeville, TN. I highly recommend this park that is located southwest of Nashville. I think the plan is to continue having our reunions there--fine by me--I especially enjoyed the hiking, particularly the hike down to Fall Creek Falls
The hike was pretty steep, but a lot of fun. My mil was kind enough to watch the munchkin for me so that I could go with all the young-uns on the hike. (Young-uns = aged 50ish years and below!!!) The children all got in to swim in the spray of the falls when we got to the bottom. They said it was so cold it made their bodies hurt. The guys all broke the well posted rules and climbed behind the falls. What a bunch of goofs!

All the women just prayed for their safety--those rocks were very slick from the spray. One lady was obviously displeased with our men's lack of discretion. She told how last year she had seen an accident where a helicopter had to be flown in to get someone who was injured out from behind the falls. Thank you--thank you very much, kind lady, for that info.

Oh Jenna so sorry I missed you during your vacation! Yes, we live like 30 minutes from Fall Creek Falls and we love to go camping there. It truly is beautiful. I hope we can meet up next time you are in.
Have a blessed and beautiful day.
:)

This is a beautiful park! We've been up there a few times but never camped. I'll have to put that on our list of to do's!

That looks like a fun place...we used to do a lot of hiking on our vacations and that is probably something our guys would do too!
