Day 3 – Lake Guntersville to Cherokee, NC

Hi there..Today we packed up the camper and headed out. We left Lake Guntersville State Park around 9:00 am. We hit the road and it wasn’t that long before our first stop, Camping World in Chattanooga, TN, whopp whoop!! We needed some supplies for the camper…

We also needed groceries for our week in the Blue Ridge Mountains, so we stocked up at…wally world (Get your dance on Mrs. Denise). We had a nice lunch in the walmart parking lot, then we headed off to complete our journey to Cherokee, NC. The ride was so nice. We first passed through Ocoee National Forest, which consisted of high rock cliffs and beautiful lakes and streams..

We stopped off at a lookout over a dam where various sports took place during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games..pretty cool!

We drove through Ocoee National Forest, then arrived in Nantahala National Forest. There were a ton of people kayak and white water rafting, looks like fun!

As we continued on, we passed through Cherokee National Forest. Again, the views were breath taking as we meandered along mountain passes and streams..

We finally arrived at our campground, Indian Creek Campground in Cherokee, NC. It’s awesome little campground where you can hear mountain streams in the campground, cool!

We set up shop, with a little help from the camp host (our space was tight to back in). I cooked a Jambalaya for supper tonight (see next post for recipe). We lit a fire as we were waiting for dinner to finish up and we ate by the fire tonight. In fact, I’m writing this post by the fire too, thanks to our Jefa TechWireless Repeater. We can get boost the campgrounds wireless network and the local router creates our own strong wireless network, I love my gadgets! Until tomorrow, Bon Soir!
