Sweet Home Carolina (and bumps in the road)

What a beautiful blue sky. Well the plan since we got here late was to come back the next day day and hike to Johns Gap water fall. Well you know how plans are… We woke up in the morning. Mark went to empty the gray water tank and the dump pipe was cracked. Ya see we ran over a shredded piece of tire in the road on the way here. Mark walked around the Rv to see if there was any damage but did not see that. Well thank God it was not a brake line or something like that. Tomorrow there is a 70% chance of rain so I doubt we will get back there. Well another day another time maybe. What a beautiful park. Casars Head is a must see.

There was a couple of bikers standing up there with us and told us that there use to not be a steal fence around the cliff and when they were kids they would climb down on the rocks and up on the water tower at the top. What a great place to grow up.

Well we pulled in Saturday got settled in. Sunday we spent catching up with old friends. We met Nina and Mack for lunch & Nicole and George for supper. Than Monday we took off for Caesars Head State park. On the way marks GPS took us to a wrong turn up a dirt road on the side of the mountain. Mark being determined and loving a challenge kept going thinking it might be a back way into the park. Well we cam to an in pass had to turn around and head back down 3 miles or so. We finally found the entrance to the park. We got a map of the park and attempted to find Raven Cliff Falls on the map. There was only one sign. When we finally got there it was too late to take the hike up to the bridge that over looks the falls so we hiked to the over look.
