Daddy Save Me!
We spent a wonderful week camping at Bigfoot Horse Trail Camp in the De Soto National Forest in Mississippi. The place is mainly used as a horse camp, but everyone may camp there. Big Foot Horse Trail consists of a total of four loops ranging in length from 5 to 11 miles.
We walked the trails multiple days in various ways and had a great time. The first day we walked the smallest loop which was actually 4.8 miles long. After hiking for a while we came to a bit of a water crossing. I’m not sure if a small stream actually crossed the path or it was a result of flooding from all the rain, but a decision had to be made. We had less than a mile left so we decided to cross instead of backtracking.
So it was decided I would wade on in first and see how deep it was. Let’s just say I really didn’t think the water was gonna be that high and man was it cold. Halfway through there was no turning back so I kept on trekking toward the other side. Jamey picked Dexter up because it was far deeper than what he could walk through. The whole time we were laughing and Dexter just looked completely perplexed.
It was a fun little adventure for the day though and it been a few since we had one.
