Current River High Adventure Part 1

We were at the church early on Saturday morning loading our gear into the cars. We took a picture of the group right before we left. The car ride wasn’t very fun, and when we stopped for gas a lot of people had money, but it was in the trailer. We had lunch at historic rest stop, and the let us eat on the front porch. It was raining at the time, and we left as soon as we cleaned up.

We made one stop after lunch at a gas station, but besides that we were driving the whole time. We passed over many rivers including the Ohio, Mississippi, and the Tennessee. When we arrived it was still bright outside. We set up our tents and prepared dinner. Then we went to bed.

We woke up early that morning to find out we weren’t going canoeing that day, because the water was to high. Instead we went to a waterfall full of fish. Most people played with the hacky sack while other people fished. We had lunch their, and stayed for about 4 hours. wpid-IMG_20130603_120355_554.jpgwpid-IMG_20130602_121824_311.jpg

Then, we went back and had dinner. That night we played fireball. Everyone stands in a circle and throws the ball to each other. If you don’t catch it you’re out. At 10 o’clock we went to bed.

The next morning we woke up and we didn’t go canoeing again, because the water was too high. That day we decided to go to Devils Well. You walk down a long stairway and you you see a gate. We push a light switch button, but nothing happened. We pressed it again, but this time we looked around and below us was an under ground lake with a little waterfall. We hiked the trail at the entrance and found a lot of mushrooms, and crossed many creeks. We saw cave springs and very interesting wild flowers. When we finished the hike we had lunch and fished at the pond in front of Devils Well. We went back to camp and had dinner. After dinner we had a campfire ceremony and went to bed.
