Weekend Adventure: Camping at Tate Branch

If you've read this blog for any length of time, you know that our favorite way to escape the world and find solace is in the outdoors. So a couple weekends ago, we decided that a low-key camping trip was in order. We packed up the tent, some good food, our hiking gear and our pup and headed north to the Nantahala National Forest {my favorite} for a couple nights.

Our itinerary was low-key, starting with a a half day hike on Saturday to the top of Big Scaly Mountain. It was eight miles round trip... four uphill and four down! {Our legs were a bit sore the next day.} Then, we spent the afternoon relaxing and reading next to the river. Husband built an amazing campfire and we ate and talked next to the fire until it dwindled out. Sunday morning we woke up and explored the river a bit, husband fished, Sam played in the water. 

it was just what we needed, and we can't wait for our next camping trip that's coming up in October. {Last year's birthday trip was so completely perfect, that I've been dreaming of Standing Indian for the past couple weeks!}
