to go overnight to Indian Grinding Rock. Its called that because there is......a huge grinding rock where the native peoples ground their acorns into meal. Its really a sight to see, so of course, we didn't take any pictures of it! We also didn't get into the museum, but we did go to the nearby Black Chasm caverns. It was so hot while we were there, in the 100's, so going into the 60 degree chasm was a pleasure.

|We found a huge beehive in this tree, straight out of Winnie the Pooh, except we didn't try to steal the honey|

I think we had a pretty good time. There were some attitude problems, too much messing around by the fire by little boys, and fun just doing nothing. We went on a few hikes. We saw some deer, a variety of birds, lots of pincer bugs and spiders and 1 lizard. This was the first time we went camping since we became a family of 7, and now we know it is doable. I think maybe sometime we may even camp for 2 nights!
