Easter weekend camping trip

Our family went camping this weekend at Tannehill State Park. It was a trip that almost didn't happen.

We'd planned on going to Oak Mountain State Park, but we were turned away when we got there because their campgrounds were full. I never would have thought so many people went camping on Easter weekend!

We called Tannehill, and thankfully they had plenty of room. It was a bit nerve-wracking trying to get the tent put together as darkness fell, and we were late getting a fire started for dinner, but by the next morning, everything was back to normal.

We enjoyed hiking in the woods, wading through the stream in bare feet, exploring the old ironworks, playing at the playground, throwing rocks in the creek, and eating hobo packets and s'mores by the campfire. On our second night, we even saw a group of several deer bounding around in the woods just across the creek behind our tent. Encountering a snake a little while later was met with somewhat less enthusiasm though.

Here are more photos from our camping trip.
