Alley Spring Camping Trip - Part 1

We arrived at Alley Spring, near Eminence in plenty of time to set up camp and explore a little. Our campsite was just short walk from the Jacks Fork River, where the late afternoon sun was lighting the bluffs.

On Saturday, we headed to the river for a day of floating. For some of the little ones, it was their first long float and they did great. Amazing what a constant supply of snacks and juice boxes can do!The scenery is gorgeous. Here's some of our crew as little colorful dots at the base of one of the many bluffs. We saw tons of turtles sunning themselves on rocks.

Here's my groom and I, posing with the rocks. All in all, it was a perfect float. A few people ended up in the cold water against their will, but we did manage to return to camp with the same number of people we left with.

Gorgeous. How fun.

I'm so glad to see actual BLUFFS. We USED to live in Bluffton, IN - - - which is supposedly named after the "bluffs" along the Wabash River - - - only NO BLUFFS!!!!
