More Blackwater River State Park – 4300 miles

Finally tore ourselves away from Blackwater River after 5 days…Christmas day we got too late of a start, then made some friends so we stayed for dinner…then the next day I didn’t feel up to a long drive. Now we’re in New Orleans, in a motel, which is rather surreal after five days in the woods. About to head over to Bourbon St. still smelling of woodsmoke.

Here’s a few pix –

    Hi Peter & Teri,
    Sorry about the late Christmas dinner, and all the beverages! The conversation was excellent though! I didn’t feel too good either! We found another beautiful camping site in the Blackwater River State Forest, just north of the state park; Hurricane Lake (much better than it sounds). We spent 9 more days out in the woods there. You have a great website too!
