North Carolina Trip-- Deep Creek Hike

If anyone in the area is looking for a fun family hike, I would highly recommend the Deep Creek Campground right outside Bryson City. It has three beautiful waterfalls that are easy to hike to, water to splash and play in, and lots to explore. It's definitely kid-friendly.

Just look at this hanging-vine-turned-Tarzan-swing.

Usually when we go on hikes we take Chloe in a hiking backpack. But she was able to walk most of the trails by herself.

This is the first waterfall we hiked to.

And this is the second waterfall. 

We could have stayed here for hours letting the kids splash in the creek and hunt for critters.

My battery went dead, so I didn't get any pictures of the third waterfall. But it was beautiful as well. The kids splashed in the water at the base of the falls there, also. And there is the most magical little area that you can walk into and feel like you're surrounded by enchanted creatures. :)

Deep Creek Campground is a place I would definitely not mind returning to!

I loved the little blue butterflies everywhere, and the tiger swallowtails too. It felt like we were in fantasyland.

what a great recap of the trip! We definitely had post-vacation blues when we came home & missing everyone!
