The park is known to have an abundance of wildlife. While it would have been awesome to sight a bear or scare Kevin with a copperhead snake, this turtle was the biggest wild thing I got to see.
After getting our passes, we went on some short trails to see some sights on the upper parts of the gorge. The limestone cliffs were fantastic.
After a couple of trails we thought it would be best to setup camp and then spend the rest of the day doing things. I used my phone and looked at a satellite map of where were were and saw what looked like to be an extensive camping area. We went to that area and I spied a trail going the opposite direction from where we saw some campers. I didn't consult the group I just made a beeline for it and they followed. We found two cleared camps and I was satisfied but the trail continued on and we made our way down to a campsite that was more difficult to get to but had one helluva view:
