Camping in North Carolina!

So We went Camping this weekend! More like Backpacking.... I think Billy was nervous I was gonna say no, so he sugar coated it all as much as possible. He said we were going on a little camping trip where there was a little 5 minute hike to where we would camp and then we would walk the next day to a waterfall. So I was not prepared with Hiking clothing, shoes, rain gear and all that good stuff.
But what it really was.... a 10 mile hike to the waterfalls, which we didn't get a chance to see. It was really rainy and after we hiked pretty far and crossed the creek 4 or 5 times, everyone had had enough for the day. But we'll definitely have to go back when it's warm and see the waterfalls! It was a lot of fun and it was my first time meeting all these people. They are a way fun group of people to chill with! Can't wait to plan more fun stuff!
Hiking the trail... Billy would not give up that Donatello hiking stick he found! And I have to say I loved that muddy stick , he kept hitting me in the head and arm with it when he wasn't paying attention : )
It was a gorgeous view! I kinda felt like I was in New Zealand or something.
Some of the trees looked like ropes, they were so knotted up!
Hiking up the trail some more
We followed the River most of the way! Too bad it wan't warmer, there were some cool places we could have jumped in at!

Hey Lucy I didn't know that you had been to New Zealand? I guess there is a lot I don't know about you. Looks like you had fun we miss you guys and look forward to seeing you soon. There are a lot of places to hike here if you want to go?
