Day 49- Waterfall

Day 49- Waterfall

Howdy,

Levi and I woke up and went over to Cooley's house to enjoy breakfast with him and his family. We sat outside, and it was great to see the beautiful view from their porch during daylight hours. They invited us to go to church with them, and I was interested since it has been quite some time since I have had the opportunity. We had a bit of downtime before leaving and then went into town with them. It was great to meet some of their friends and more of the community. When we returned Levi and I grabbed our backpacks and headed out. Within a mile or so we reached the time zone line. It was strange gaining an hour just like that! So, now we are in central time zone. Since breakfast was so early in the morning, we were getting hungry again. A store was ahead and we went in to see what they had. There was a minimal selection, so we ended up getting drinks and a box of swiss rolls...too many swiss rolls! I don't think I will eat another one of those for a while lol. We sat outside and chatted with a man, who we never did catch his name, about anything and everything while we ate. 

We continued on in hopes of reaching the Ozone waterfall we heard so much about. Luckily we got some advice to go past the sign to the next hidden entrance to make it to the bottom of the fall. We made it down the path, and it was very pretty! I have not seen too many waterfalls in person, if ever. I went down and stood near it, and even though it was hot outside the water was pretty chilly. Levi was taking pictures, trying to get me to get closer and closer to it, and the wind moved the stream right above my head! I ended up getting a refreshing douse of waterfall :) We hung out a bit longer and then continued on. 
The rest of the day was pretty hot and humid. People kept talking about Crab Orchard's homesteads, but we either never came across them or we didn't notice them. We were happy to get a pizza towards the end of the day when we saw our first store in since the last one. We sat and ate tha,t and when we were finished remembered that we lost an hour of daylight. So, we figured we would look for a camp spot after. We didn't have to go far when we saw an area between the overlapping highway we were on and the interstate. We went deep back in there and found a great spot in the middle of nothing. Another successful day with the highlight definitely being the waterfall!
Best,
Shikira
