While camping at various site in the eastern USA we came upon one of the best History Museums we’ve yet to visit. The Museum of Appalachia is a wonderful complex located in Clinton, TN. It features 2 large buildings, which house everything from tools to quilts to toys & musical instruments. There are also many historic log structures located on the grounds including the former cabin of Mark Twain’s family. Also there are gardens, farm animals and local folk artists to show you the ancient arts. My favorite part though was the building that housed all of the old tools and such (I think it brings back happy memories of exploring in my two grandpa’s sheds and basements)

One of our favorite things to see when hiking in the wilderness is waterfalls. Perhaps it’s because we live in south Florida where the only hills are interstate overpasses. We will hike all kinds of steep, rough trails to get to falling water, most times we aren’t disappointed. We could spend all day resting peacefully by the sound of rushing water.
