Land Between the Lakes

Two weekends ago, my good buddy Lori drove up from Atlanta and I drove down from Urbana and we met at the Land Between the Lakes on the KY and TN border in western Kentucky. We backpacked for two nights at a leisurely pace and did a lot of swimming. The first night, we forded across to a small island to camp the first night. The first picture shows Lori during sunset from our island campsight and the second shows her wading back across in the morning carrying our trekking poles and boots (I was the only one tall enough to carry our packs across and had to make a couple of trips). The water was perfect, though, in the mid-70's and we had a really nice backcountry trip. The last picture shows us with our finger companions, Virginia la Viajera and Teresa the Traveler. Loyal readers of the blog will recognize Teresa from our trip around the country in the summer of 2005. Lori got me Virginia in Mexico with the intention that I would take her to China, but she didn't arrive in the mail early enough, so she's making her travel album debut at LBL.
