Big South Fork, TN

So this past weekend we decided to head to Big South Fork, TN to ride horses for the weekend.

I have never been here so I was excited to check out the trails.  All I can say is I wish we had been able to stay for an entire week to see much more of the beautiful trails.

Friday was spent all day driving, cooking supper, and setting up camps.

Saturday morning we got up early and fixed a HUGE breakfast.  Then we hit the trails.

First stop was the over look.  I can' even explain how beautiful this overlook was.  It felt like you were standing on the edge of the world.

The cliffs judding out over the gorge below was one of the most beautiful views I had ever seen.

Then we climbed back on and headed down into the gorge.  We followed one of the creeks until it came into a huge river.

Once into the river we decided we were going to walk across until my horse decided to walk on a huge rock that flipped and we almost went under.

Luckily he got his footing back and we just decided to stay on our side of the river.

By this time the horses were getting tired so we decided to head back to camp.

On the way back Lindsay decided to let her horse stop in one of the creeks to get a sip.  As she stepped into the creek her horse marred up in the sand.  She went belly deep but she got out and both of them were good to go.

After a long day of riding, we hosed the horses off and turned them out into the small pastures to play and chill for a bit.

I couldn't have asked for a better trip.  These ladies definetely made it a lot of fun.  I can't wait to go back next year.

Thank you to Saddle Valley Campground in Jamestown, TN for being such a great host and letting us spend three wonderful days there.
