Franklin State Park and Mary Bobo's

On February 16th, we had a huge group show up for two easy hikes in Franklin State Park..I think it was 30!? After a drive over to Sewanee, we parked and made short work of approx. 1.7 miles in and out to Tom Pack Falls. We hiked around a short bluff and then scrambled down to check out the waterfalls.

Then we had to climb back up the hill we had scrambled down to view the falls.

When we were back up to our cars, we loaded up and headed back down the road, where we did 3+ miles.

Here we plunged in to the woods and did a bit of meandering. The trail was good, company even better, and it soon we arrived at a bluff overlook. From this vantage point, we were looking back at Sand Mtn. and Lookout Mtn. just beyond.

Then, it got a bit confusing. There was some dividing of the troops so to speak, and quite a few headed out to do a longer hike while the remainder enjoyed the pictuesque drive to Lynchburg so we could stuff out faces at Mary Bobo's Restaurant!

This place was unbelievable and, except for the group being separated into different rooms, it couldn't have been a nicer experience!
