This is the first video of our vacation to explore Washington and take an Alaskan Cruise, both of which were awesome! Unfortunately we had a rocky start the first day when our 7 hour flight turned to 23 hours!

The second of our Mousetail Landing State Park videos, we arrive at the backpackers campsite (shelter #2) set on a cliff, overlooking the Tennessee River. I have decided that this is the prettiest campsite in Western Tennessee. Beautiful weather and beautiful scenery. We saw several different kinds of barges going up and down the river and a beautiful sunset. It was beautifully surreal!

Part 3 coming soon where we lose the trail on our hike back and check out shelter #1.

We did an overnight backpacking trip to Mousetail Landing State Park in Tennessee, one of the most beautiful state parks in the area, with a gorgeous campsite set on a cliff overlooking the Tennessee River. We thankfully made it to the campsite before dark, and in time to see a gorgeous sunset. We were also shocked to learn that one of the prettiest and newest bridges on the trail had been completely wiped out by flash flooding. Come hiking with us for part 1 of Mousetail Landing! Part 2, Hammock Camping over the Tennessee River, coming soon!

We made a second visit to the Big River Crossing Bridge, opened just recently, connects Memphis to Arkansas. It is built over an old car bridge from the early 1900’s and gives you a unique and amazing view of the Mississippi. This time we saw Memphis in May set up on the Memphis banks and the river at flood stage.

This is the second part of our backpacking trip at Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park, trying to follow about half of the blue 20 mile trail. Some parts of it were well marked, some were difficult to find. But all of it was a beautiful, exciting adventure! Come along on along for a surprisingly beautiful backpacking trial in western Tennessee!

Last November we had a beautiful weekend to backpack overnight at Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park in Western Tennessee. This park has steep ridges with great hill practice for our yearly section hikes on the AT. Our first day we arrived there was after dark and it made an interesting hike! We attempted a section of the 20-mile blue trail the next day which basically takes you on a tour around the entire park. Some parts were well marked, others, not so much, but still as always, a new, fun adventure! Though we’ve been to this park many times before, we found new parts of the park on this trail we had no idea existed! come hike with us!
