    VIDEO: Flat Laurel Creek April 5-6, 2013

    Got the chance to take my Dad and Uncle to the Flat Laurel Creek Trail for a quick little trip. Originally we were supposed to camp two nights, but an unexpected ice storm at that elevation changed our plans a bit Still, we got to get out on Friday morning and hiked in the clouds and ice covered trees. Made it to camp just in time for the sun to come out Hiked up to the little valley right below Sam Knob, and enjoyed a sunset on the creek. Got down to the low 20s Saturday early am, coldest night yet in the hammock, with only my feet getting a little chilly. Reason #10 I need that new full length down uq
    Definitely my Dad's first time in temps that cold and his third time hammock camping, and my Uncle's very first. They say they want to go again, so I call that a success

    Thanks for sharing - I liked the choice of music and the scenery.
    I need to get back up there. The last time we got rained out.

    Thanks for the compliments. Glad you enjoyed. Yeah, that's one of my favorite little spots in all the Blue Ridge mountains. We got iced, snowed, rained out on Thursday, but were able to get up there for Friday and Saturday

    Looks like an AWESOME trip! Thanks for taking me along

    That's time well-spent that you'll remember forever -- wish my Dad was still around to do the same.

    Yeah I sure do appreciate time spent with my Dad and the memories made, and I agree that we don't have but just a limited amount of time to enjoy time together

    Sorry should have stated that. Its western NC right off the Blue Ridge parkway in the Pisgah National Forrest. In the southern escarpment of the Blue ridge mountains in a three county area: Transylvania, Haywood, and Jackson Counties. Thanks for watching.

    Snif, snif, it's not available on mobile devices, but it was still available in small vision. Looks like a lot of fun.
    Shalom.

    Yeah, sorry about that. Not sure but I think it has something to do with the song in the video. I guess I just need to start making my own music ala Shug
