Wednesday, April 25, 2012- Little River Trail and Elkmont Cookout

We went on the Little River Trail in the past and knew that Letty could easily travel on it. The trail follows the Little River and is a wide, hard packed gravel trail with a very gentle uphill slope from the trailhead near the Elkmont Campground.

Showy Orchis (Orchids)- a little past prime color.

When we got back to the campsite, it was time to cook the ribs that had been marinating all day in the fridge.  Letty suggested potatoes with them, so I made wedges.

Inspire by KFC, Tom prepared potato wedges for the campfire.

Marinated ribs are ready for the basket, while Letty does embroidery.
