Me and TrailMedic made it down to BSF and hiked around Leatherwood Ford for 3 nights; I just wanted to share a few pictures.
No, the picture below is not how we crossed the Ford; that would have been dangerous and irresponsible. Actually we didn't see the little piece of paper taped to the gazebo saying, "Don't cross the Ford; Duh! It's clearly broken." Until we had already crossed and came back to the car. Oh well, we survived to tell the tale.
Third day was sunny; we hiked to the Angel Falls, which really aren't falls but some pretty impressive rapids.
My first visit to BSF and I really enjoyed it. I definitely want to come back, maybe when it's a little cooler. Temperatures were in the mid-80's during the day and mid-60's overnight, but surprisingly bugs were not very bad. Some eye-gnats every once in a while, but I slept without any netting all three nights.
