Cumberland Trail Adventure Part II

White way

Day 2, continued: We bail on the Cumberland Trail and decide to live in the lap of luxury by going to Cracker Barrel for lunch. We chat over nice, hot food in a nice, centrally heated restaurant, and two of our group decide to head back to Nashville. The rest of us decide that even though we can't do the trail as planned, we can tough out a second night in the cold. So we head out to Frozen Head State Park, one of my favorite Tennessee parks, and set up camp.

Day 3: We wake up to a winter wonderland. It is actually slightly warmer than the previous night, but the snow is falling and everything looks very picturesque. We don't do a real hike - just .6 miles to DeBoard Falls and then back. Then we pack up and head back to town.

All in all, it was cold but fun, and it was nice to know we could handle everything that came our way. Next time we go camping, though, it'll be a little warmer.
