We met up at 8:30 in the morning and rode to the park caravan style. We all had a variety of "gear" to make our experience a good one. What I should have had were a pair of gloves with good grip and a bee keeper's hat to kip the gnats out of my face. SERIOUSLY! I'm sure I ate at least 4 bugs with 2 flying in my ear and 2 more flying up my nose. NOT COOL! Needless to say I did a lot of screaming and ducking and swatting. I survived though.
We hiked about 4-5 miles up and down rocks and such. Now going in I thought we would be walking a rocky trail, I did not realize we were hiking a rock trail. While my body hurts from head to toe post hike it was a lot of fun and the views were amazing. The falls are simply beautiful.

People were kayaking behind me
They were really pretty, I even caught Chrissy in my panoramic shot
Group shot, we were missing 3 people
On our way to the trail we saw some ducklings
My Babe was the Ranger, he is pointing out the trail information
The sign says its the toughest trail in the east... *pause for reaction*
The mosquito/gnats were attacking us. I was trying to hide from them.
After some crazy hiking we ended up on a little beach area.
I was good and warmed up, that sweat shirt had to come off.
So I used the sleeves to fight the bugs, it totally worked
Because it took us hours to hike he sped up the video, which turned out pretty cool.
We all had a blast and we had a lot of jokes and laughs for sure. We also had some classic funny moments. Here a few quotes from my girls...
Chrissy says " This flubber sucker done tried to kill me - this is some slip!"
Ty says "I can't drink water cause it ain't no where for me to pee, dammit"
DeAnn says "Are you sure this is still the blue trail??" "this is some blue-bullhit"
