the last day when we finished the alum cave bluffs trail we went down to the river and ate the watermelon that we had been saving in our cooler. it was well worth the wait. i am 2 for 2 on watermelon this year. we sat by the river and sank our teeth into a sweet and juicy watermelon. cody and ellen even got into the mix. that night we were back at the elkmont campground. we got up at 7 and hit the road for home on sunday. we stayed in a holiday inn on the way home and got back to the house on monday about 4 in the afternoon.
