Saturday, June 25 – We took Bella on a hike this morning. It was the same trail we hiked yesterday, so new she would love it.
She was a super hiker for about 80% of the trip, then she ran out of gas. She stopped at a stream for a drink and that gave her a little energy ,but we ended up carrying her for the last 2-3 tenths of a mile.
We took a family photo…minus Kelly and Carrie.
She slept the remainder of the day....pooped.
This forest is full of Loblolly Pine trees. These trees are very tall and very straight. They would make good telephone poles.
We headed to the Ka-Do-Ha Indian Village. KA-DO-HA Indian village is a pre-historic site that was populated by the Mound Builders approximately 1,000 years ago.
We did not tour the village, due to the $8 fee, but did stop in the trading post. And what did we find in one of the display cases......PINE NEEDLE BASKETS made by Cherokee Indians.
These tiny baskets were no bigger than the palm of your hand and were selling in the $70-80 range.
We made a quick stop at Miners' Camping and Rock Shop. Marsha wanted to purchase some bottoms for her new baskets. This guy had tons of rocks. These were our favorites but too big to buy.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll again real soon. Have a great day!
