Thunder Rock

we left Chillhowee Campground yesterday around noon time.
Needless to say we took a different route from the campground than the one we took to get there.
It was mountain top road just like the Foothill Parkway.  The scenery was breath taking beautiful.
We stopped at a couple of look overs that took our breaths away.
We came out to the route that takes you to the Thunder Rock Campground.
This road takes you along the Parksville Lake.
We soon came to the bridge that crosses the Ocoee River and was surprised that instead of a river it was just a trickle of water. That may look like mud but it is rocks.
Another surprise there were only a few sites open as they have gone from a first come to the Reserve America system.  We did get a site and will be here for three days.
These sites are non electric and one water spigot, no dump station.  No over the air tv, we have no phone signal and the Verizon Hotspot just have one bar. There is a shower house with a flush toilet so we are roughing it easy.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
