DeSoto State Park and Little River Canyon
we got there Friday night right before dark so as soon as we found a camping spot Tim and elder child started pitching tents while little ones helped me start a fire to cook our supper. We had all decided to have shish-kabobs..ohhhh man were those good!!!!! We had forgotten to pack the camp stove though..don't ask me how you forget something like that but I did. So it was back to pioneer days of cooking everything over the fire for us!! The next morning Tim and I had trouble sleeping so we got up and started the fire thinking that it was 5 something im the morning. WRONG!! Tim's watch had stopped it was actually 4 something in the morning. The girls woke up about 5 so we got our smokies, scrambled eggs and hot apple cider going.. remember I cooked this over the campfire!! Impressive eh? Got our stuff picked up and got an early start on our hiking.
OH MY GOSH!! If you had the notion to you could "accidently fall off of this waterfall!!! We were able to wade right to the edge of the falls!!!!!!!! How amazing is that?!?! The girls had so much fun wading and "slipping" in the water! On the way back to the campsite we stopped to get some ice cream cones. We are TOTAL Mayfield Fans now!! If it is available to you RUN and get some!!
