Crain Camping

Last week we had a great time camping at Davidson River Campground in the Pisgah National Forest. I was so proud of the kids. They hiked up Looking Glass Rock, a round trip of 6.2 miles! I bribed them with ice cream.

The girls and I enjoyed one of the great wonders of NC: Sliding Rock. Sliding Rock, as the picture shows, is about 60 feet of slippery rock that then plunges you into a pool with 55 degree water.

Now I’ve often pondered, who was the first person in the world who decided it might be fun to slide down that rock? Was it a Native American from long ago? A European settler? Whoever it was had some real guts, it seems.

Camping with the kids is great because it is quiet, relaxing, brings us close to nature(I really enjoyed the skunk that came within five feet of our camp area!), and affordable.
