Fall Creek Falls State Park, TN

30 Apr - 2 May 2009 Our camping trip to Fall Creek Falls was an adventure, practically an aquatic adventure. We were accompanied on our trip by Savannah (a.k.a. Favorite Daughter) and her fiance' Steven. It was to be a 4 day outing but was shortened to 3 days due to weather, rain - rain - and more rain to be exact. We arrived on a Thursday, set up camp, then it started raining and raining, etc. The rain stopped Friday morning for 4 hours, then resumed in force till mid-morning Saturday. At that time a democratic style vote was taken, with the group majority voting to break camp QUICKLY during the lull in the rain. The only thing srambling that morning was ourselves, trying to get packed up and out of there before GOD started heavily watering the park again that morning.
It was a fun camping trip though, because we were in good company. The falls were flowing well, and Fall Creek Falls happens to be the tallest/highest water fall east of the Rocky Mountains. The beautiful flowers were a mother's day gift from Savannah and Steven. We planted them there in hopes that we could come back next year to see them again.
