Uwharrie National Forrest

Our campground is right on the border of the Uwharrie National Forrest.  We spent Friday tooling around and this is a beautiful area of North Carolina.  The day was cool, providing for a window and sunroof open day.  This is one reason why I like the mountains in the summer. 

We discovered a covered bridge in this Forrest.  It is the Pisgah Covered Bridge.  There is a nice walking trail around the bridge.  The creek bed was rather dry, but it would be even more beautiful after a rain. 

We went on a driving tour and ended up at the Marrow Mountain State Park. 
 This is a really nice park.  It has several camping areas.  It has a huge river with boating access.

 It has a nice scenic ride to a mountain top just under 1000', with a nice view and great hiking.

 Folks from the beach even like it too! 

For lunch we ended up in the city of Albemarle.  We stopped at Ryan's Steakhouse.  For $5 you can still get a great buffet here.  It was a nice day.
