Ochlockonee River State Park was not intended to be a destination for us. It just happened to be in the right place at the end of the day when we needed a campground. However, it is really a lovely park. We decided to get some much-needed exercise this afternoon and explored some of the trails along the river.

A few of the park’s white squirrels took up residence at our campsite, and Tim managed to get a few photos. They certainly are odd little creatures, but they are what everyone who is here wants to see.

We also took the opportunity to look ahead for the next week or two of the trip. Although we typically shy away from long-term plans, we looked at options for a northern loop into Kentucky through Alabama and Tennessee. We acknowledge that the weather may not be too RV-friendly up there, so it may need to be a quick trip up and back. We may need to be a bit more prepared than usual.
Why Kentucky, you may ask? There are several reasons. I want to visit Mammoth Cave National Park, the only national park in the East that I’ve never been to. Tim is also in search of ancestors on his mother’s side who settled near Springfield, Kentucky. We’ve picked out a few stops on the way north and south that look intriguing. So far, the long-range weather forecast looks promising, but we’ll just have to see.
