Camping at Big South Fork

We have been trying to get to BSF to go camping for months!  Selling the house, sickness, or weather have kept us from going until this week.  We had SO much fun!  The kids said this was their favorite place they have ever hiked and camped!  We got there on Labor Day when everyone else had just left so we had the campground and the trails to ourselves. We did some hiking, swimming and lots of relaxing.   

Our favorite new camping accessory was the hammock!   It was so easy to put up and so comfy!

I think the highlight of the trip for everyone was the hike to the twin arches.  It was a breathtaking sight.  There were lot of caves, tunnels and crevices that the kids loved exploring!   They didn't want to leave!

It was so sad when we found this little fawn dead on the trail.  There was no sign of why it would have died.   

On our way home we stopped in Pall Mall to visit Sgt. York's home.  It was an interesting tour and the grist mill was beautiful.  We also went to "Ye Old Jail" in Jamestown.  The kids loved it.  It was the perfect end to our trip.

They had NO idea what this thing was....a typewriter!
