    Saturday morning started with a stop by the Smokey Mountain Diner for some breakfast. Then we loaded up to hit the road. First stop was Paint Rock. This is always a cool stop and it didn’t disappoint. This rock was originally called paint rock because of the old indian pictographs that were on it. Now its really sad that much of the rock has been vandalized with spray paint…

    We then made our way up the road and stopped for view of some waterfalls. Not long after the waterfalls we turned off onto the paint creek trail which was a seasonal road in this area that included a moderately difficult obstacle about half way through. Well, when we got to about a half mile from the obstacle we found an immovable obstacle…

    A new gate had been added and the trail had been graveled. This was a real disappointment at the time. We all turned around and made our way back to the gravel road and took a right toward the fire tower road. On the way we passed by the exit of the trail which was gated…and it was not gated. So we turned down it to see what was up and if we could access the obstacles from this side. After a few miles of trail we finally made it to the field just above the obstacle, only to find that the trail has been “obliterated” from that point back to the new gate we had just seen. I’m sure they will eventually update the Motor vehicle use map, but at this time there is no mention of this change to this road… it no longer connects, although from both entrances it looks open.

    So we turned around again to make our way back to the gravel road and visit the fire tower. Unfortunately I had my hands around Ava tight when we climbed the fire tower and didn’t get any pictures, but I know others did.

    It was nearly 4:30 by this time so we made our way back to Camp and did some swimming in the river to rinse all the dust off. Then we went out for the evening to the Spring Creek Tavern for some Wood Fired Pizza and beer. That evening we made a Peach cobbler in the dutch oven just to top off the weekend even though we were all full from dinner.

    Sunday morning we packed up, aired up the tires, and rolled out for breakfast at the Smokey mountain diner and then headed Home. On the way we made a quick stop by Grandads Apples in Hendersonville for some Apple Donuts and Apple Cider Slushies. Our trip was pretty uneventful heading home, but I heard others weren't so lucky.

    Just an A/C compressor swap... no big deal.

    I have an orphan chair here at my house that was left at camp. Anyone want to adopt it? Perhaps the original owner?

    I need a new one, if no one else wants it.
