While walking our dogs last night, the tree-line of the access road to our RV park appeared to be decorated with Christmas lights. THe entire 200 yards of trees, with their new spring leaves were alive with bright yellow and green Firefly’s — or lightning bugs we used to call them back north.
The morning colors of the trees and the sky, the mist rising above the river, smoke from a campfire somewhere along my travels through the Cherokee National Forest adds a fresh and inviting experience to the morning drive.
There are many places to camp in this section of the park. We’ve been through many of the camping areas and there is plenty of room in most of them to maneuver even the largest of Class A’s in and out of camping spots. Many people tent camp along the river itself or along one of the many crystal clear streams that run throughout this section of the National Forest.
