Ocoee River Hiking
Yesterday, we drove to the Ocoee Whitewater Center—home, in 1996, to the first Olympic whitewater event on a natural river. Pretty cool!
The area has all sorts of hiking trails, and we set off on one that ran right along the river. So pretty!
On our hikes, we’ve run into a lot of “bear warning” signs:
Is it stupid that these signs kind of freak me out? Sweet Jesus I would not react well if we ran into a bear on the trail.
Luckily, the wildlife we saw on our hike was largely limited to these snails:
Not quite as threatening as a bear.
We hiked for about two hours:
…and then settled in for a picnic lunch on the river before heading home.
Our morning was a little cloudy, but by the time afternoon rolled around, the sun was out in full force, so we hung out on the lake after naps:
For dinner, taco salads were on the menu:
…followed by Orange Is the New Black. We’re down to just one more episode—so sad that we blew through it so quickly! We just couldn’t help ourselves. Sigh.
My parents get here today and will be here for the rest of the trip—super-excited! Have a great day!
