camping | davidson river

We spent last week camping at Davidson River - outside of Brevard. There was tons to do in the area - a national forest, a state forest, 100+ waterfalls, the town of Brevard, hiking, tubing and a really really good ice cream shop.

I am going to post a few images from the trip - and plan to later post some of the many waterfall images I shot. We did hike to 8 waterfalls during the trip.

The campsite - we stayed right along the Davidson River. Good and Bad. Good = river access. Bad = road noise.

This was the scene looking upstream about 6pm on Saturday night. Notice the poor ol' fly fisherman in the middle of the waders, tubers and swimmers. I think a smarter fisherman would have been somewhere else!

One of my favorite pictures from the trip - Hannah in the lounge chair playing video games. BTW, she had run out of books after reading the 4 she'd brought with her.

This waterfall is Looking Glass Falls - right alongside the road. It is always crowded with people so I got up and drove to the falls about 8am - there was only 1 car there, shoes on the ground but no people to be seen.

And surprisingly, at the top of a waterfall in the Dupont State Forest we found a covered bridge!
