JM and I both grew up camping, but if I had to pick an expert it would def. be my sweet husband. He is an awesome planner, and found some of the best hiking trails! We camped outside of Hot Springs, NC on the French Broad River. It was mighty humid and a few thunderstorms rolled in at night, but thanks to JM's expert tenting skills we stayed nice and dry.
hiking along the AT (immediately after this picture was taken we encountered a cute little black bear- of course since it was a baby we didn't stick around to take pictures, as I'm sure momma was right around the corner)
