October 4, 2015 - From Natchez Trace to The Great Smoky Mountain National Park

We left out of Natchez Trace SP around 7:30 AM heading to our next camp, Elkmont Campground in The Great Smoky Mountains.

October 3, 2015 - Van Alstyne to Natchez Trace State Park, Tennessee

We dropped Hannah & Maggie at Tailwaggers Country Inn last night for their two week vacation and we headed out at 7:00 am.  We have a little over 500  miles before camp tonight.

Our route takes us through Arkansas, Memphis, TN to Natchez Trace SP.  I missed the Welcome to Arkansas sign but caught the Tennessee sign as we crossed the Mississippi River.

Our camp site (#27) at Natchez Trace State Park was beautiful. Right on Pinoak Lake, very large site.  I would love to come back here for more than a night and explore the area.  The park, while covered in Kudzu, is really pretty.  The Fall colors hadn't really appeared here yet, but you could see how it would be gorgeous in the season.

Try, Try, Try Again

Hmmm... What's happened in the years I've been away?  Lots!  Some good (new jobs, new house) some awful, (lost both grandparents and my eldest sister) and fortunately or unfortunately I found Facebook thus the real reason for my hiatus from my blog...

I'm going to try again, at least for a few weeks.  We are planning a trip in October and since the spousal unit does not want it publicized all over FB, I'll try (emphasis on try) to post about it here. The trip is long in coming (I hate when life gets in the way of living) - we are headed for two glorious weeks to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  Looks like the Fall colors are starting in full swing, cooler temperatures.  We've missed the mountains and the cold temps.  CANNOT. WAIT.

So try to hang on and I'll see where this trip takes us.

In the meantime...
