    Spent last night in the Cherokee national for rest at Citico Creek. Lovely trout stream! There's a little color in the trees but surprisingly not much for this time of the year. Not a soul camping here. Uumm um fresh chicken on the grill. I'll bet every bear around was sniffing me out. Now I see if I get me some trout. 74a83a6b608dd6629ec17342aeb941a4.jpg 2f7c6219fa502a5c61a18c539f896760.jpg c1d0a7a93b70c4401680da670ac99478.jpg 85a1ecae7668be439f0f7cbe638d1ea9.jpg 1ba912f80c0c41d8b8e27b61ffe10b38.jpg

    Little cool the other night, but some hot coffee followed by left over chicken warmed me up. Time for trout fishing. Caught one on a spinner. Had other ones just swim up and look at it. Lost a couple of nice ones. Had fried taters, broccoli and hominy for dinner. Area was mostly vacant. Some that were deer hunting, we're camping further up the mountain. Lots of quartz in this area, some really big to. 5b7c937ebd2848460bd72a8a39c04ec1.jpg 9024c0f6edbdcdcf83944eb6a0237227.jpg 74f2e2d6d62377ab1f2693ea93d02bac.jpg 341d3f392345b1a38148821cee44cd02.jpg ce9756f81addcd322a419aa5ac6e03e6.jpg c8cb6ce9d542d0d8496dd36d1732b421.jpg 332bdc797e7c2e16973ae2f9ebd735fb.jpg 6f9cdd7f2079619958e5d96bcd2a6a04.jpg dc9d8aaa38d05d90242cbfad6aea3ab6.jpg

    Did you bring along that iron grille for cooking? That's pretty heavy so I am guessing that the campsite is near the parking area. The stream is shallow and I'm wondering if trouts inhabit shallow waters like that. That's a pretty nice campsite especially the chicken dinner that you had. That's a new style of roasting chicken with the suspended griller.

    Yes sir, the grate was made to the fire pit. The chicken was excellent smothered with basil and rosemary herbs. The trick to keep chicken from sticking, is to use olive oil on the grate and brush it on the chicken. The stream was loaded with great trout. A person has to sneak down to the water because the trout will see you, and not bite. I had a great time there except the last night. Heavy rain was moving in and I was leaving at first light. A little after dark a car rolled in with a couple of suspicious looking guys. I done had everything packed except hammock and tarp, so I didn't take me long to get out of there. Glad I did because it started raining soon after.
