Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

Creek walking with kids
« on: June 01, 2017, 10:53:27 AM »

I was inspired to take my kids hiking by this article on Trail Groove http://www.trailgroove.com/issue31.html?autoflip=131

I thought some of you might appreciate some pictures of yesterday's hike with my kids. I know that this waterfall is not a secret, but I picked up way too much garbage so I am not naming it.

This was the kids introduction to creek hiking. Tevas or watershoes for them, regular hiking shoes for me. They had no issues with wet feet, I'm hoping to get them used to wet feet so backpacking is easier in the future.

Only passed two young women on our way to the car (about 10 minutes from the road), so once again it felt like I owned the gorge.







The water below the falls was really low, you could touch the waterfall without getting your feet wet, never seen it that low before.

If you want to see more pics of the backs of my kids (I don't put their faces online), there are more here https://backpackandbeer.blogspot.com/2017/06/wet-waterfall-hike.html

it's because it's gotten so dang popular. It's bound to bring the Trash... oh and you'll find garbage, too.

Litterers irritate me.   >:(

Cute pictures! Thanks for cleaning up as you go...

My oldest liked the look of a couple campsites until I pointed out all of the broken beer bottles in the fire ring. Then, she was just confused why someone would do that. It seems double stupid to me, first you carry in bottles, like you can't get beer in a can. Then you decided that it would be a good idea to break a bunch of them in the fire???

The garbage in the gorge really frustrates me.
