Blowing Rock camping: Julian Price Memorial Park

July 12, 2009

This weekend we spent Friday night camping at Julian Price Memorial Park, just down the road from Boone and near Moses Cone at mile 297 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Over the past year we’ve acquired all kinds of camping gear and this was the first chance we’ve had to break away for the night and test it out! Our campsite was looking great…

but there were a few bumps in the road. The innocent looking grill collapsed right at the climax of cooking two filets that were peacefully minding their business…and after battling smoke and flame to try and hold the grill in one piece, we ended up finishing dinner while grilling on the ground – still delicious! We laid the grill to rest at the camp dumpster and counted ourselves lucky that my thumb was the only casualty.

Added to that we forgot our pillows…so we happily packed up to head home the next morning fully recognizing maybe we aren’t quite professionals yet.

We spent most of the day today planning the Paris leg of our honeymoon, which I’m looking forward to sharing as we continue to build our plans…any travel tips? I discovered this handmade papers store on good bones, great pieces today, and it’s definitely added to my list of stores to seek out in the city. With less than six weeks to go until our wedding, it’s nice to focus on the honeymoon for a change!
