4th of July Weekend Photos!

So we went camping for the 4th of July weekend. We stayed at "Green Brier Island" Campground in the Smokey Mountains. It was only about 2 miles from Gatlinburg and while it had good access to the river and to Gatlinburg the facility itself was heavily lacking. I would not suggest going to this campground if you're planning a trip, the sites are too small, the bath house was nasty, and they nickel and dime you for everything.

Besides the campground itself being less then good it was a great trip we went tubing down the river (and have black and blue butts from all the rocks), we spent a few hours in Gatlinburg showing all the Cali' people what a real tourist spot looks like (;-) and we ate *way* too much (VERY) good greasy camp food. (Thanks to Tom our Campsite cook!)

We took Luna as well; she did really good but was a little overwhelmed by the car ride, living in a tent, and being tied up all or on a lead all day. :) Needless to say she's a little spoiled when it comes to being comfortable. (See the photo of her in the green chair) It was good for her to get a little dirty and she even walked in the shallows of the river for a little while. (OK, I pulled her into the shallows and she stood there with an “OMG THIS WATER IS COLD!” look on her face…)

Anyway, check out the photos here: LINK
