We’re just back from a trip to Rock Creek Recreation Area near Erwin, TN. It remains one of our all-time favorite National Forest campgrounds. However, this trip was tempered with torrential rainfalls, and the fact that our formerly reliable truck suffered an engine-destroying event that ended with us having to be towed back home from Tennessee.
Still, we managed to have a good time and we made more good memories than bad ones.

I had to wait a day for water levels to subside to make the hike after three days of torrential rains.
