Fall Camping

Well, we had our Check up Wednesday morning at the Heart Doctor, I an still throwing *(PVC;s) but me AFib is controlled so, we loaded up the camper and headed out on the road headed north up into the mountains, we found a nice Camping site up at Cranberry Lake. The weather was cloudy and temp was about 60 degrees.
.
.
My little Honey shared the driving and we switched off and got to cranberry lake.  Anna Mae did most of the setup of the camper but I held my own.
.
.
I stacked firewood, split kindling wood, and got the fire going for some warmth, the temps at the lake were in the high 50's !
.
.
I am cooking dinner, Pork, sliced onions, and Potatoes over an open wood fire .
.
.
We relaxed after our dinner with a nice fire, some great conversation and very quiet.
.
.
We relaxed and watched the sunset ouer over Lake and it was a beautiful night.
.
.
View from our Campsite, we packed everything inside the camper and car and turned in early, but we were not gonna sleep all night,  outside at 5:30AM we heard growling, snarling and rummaging around the campsite,  it was a BEAR CUB.
.
.
Needless to say we were awake till it quieted down,  tried to go back to sleep but it came back.  Nothing damaged but some Bear Scat and tracks around the site. I could not get a picture but googled and foun
d this one that is close to what we saw..
.
.
First thing in the Morning My Honey is making old fashioned perked coffee in a old aluminum coffee pot we have had for years, Good Cup of Joe !!!!!!
.
.
Breakfast was delicious and we headed out to do some fishing today !
.

.
We had a few bites but didn't catch anything but enjoyed the sunshine.
.
.
The river is down, every fall they draw the water down 3 to 4 feet to make room for snow and Ice and spring run off, other wise up above i would be normally standing in water!! 
.
.
We had lunch and then headed out for a walk up towards Bear Mountain !
.

.
After our walk I think I dozed off !!!!!
.
.
Relaxing around the campfire..
.

.
Well, we watched the stars, saw satellites going over and saw a couple Owls. was a great couple days. 
.
Don't forget our Vets !!

OH MAN! FAll is the best time to camp. We live in the motor home and KNOW we are not camping anymore, but you bring back so many WONDERFUL memories of a brisk morning, even the bear in the Smokies. Good picture of you in the roots, great choice ANNA MAE made.

You guys look good by the fire. LOVE IT!
