Just before the Hess Truck Season exploded on my Hess Truck website, I went on a little camping weekend with some of my Team Waterfall buddies.  Things have finally slowed down enough for me to go through some of my photos from over a month ago.

We decided to make the Burrells Ford Campground our base camp for the weekend.

The campsites are about a quarter mile hike from the parking area, so it is not quite car camping, but not quite backpacking.

After setting up camp, I decided to do the short hike to King Creek Falls, which is about a half mile from the campground.

After my visit to King Creek Falls, I made one final hike back up to my truck to get some beverages for the evening and ran into Andy and his dogs who would be joining me for the first night of camping.  We had a very enjoyable time around the fire .

The fire was very welcome as the temperatures dipped below freezing.

We had a much bigger group join us for the second night of camping, but I decided to leave my camera in the truck.  Anything that happened around the campfire that second night will not be mentioned!
