I wanted something different this time. To be active and explore somewhere as a family.
Which led us to............
Y'all.....this Louisiana girl is totally in love with the waterfalls, wildlife, clear running water in the rivers and streams, the views and all the history (the good and the bad). It makes my future biologist heart fill with the possible & hope.
The only thing that got to me was the winding roads up hill and downhill. OMG, I got car sick for the first time in my life. lol It could have been my husband's driving too. He took those curves like he was driving a roller coaster. Ugh. I don't know how y'all do that on a daily basis lol

Other than that we hiked. I planned short hikes for the kiddos since while they are used to exploring, hiking and biking.....it has always been on the same elevation, which is oh so flat and even below sea level lol Heck I wasn't even used to the altitude.
It was fun though. I could so see making that place my second home. We rented a cabin and was able to cook our own meals or fix our lunches for the most part, although we did splurge a couple of times for dinner. It made it super easy for us to all eat healthy, not to mention it saved us money to spend elsewhere.

I can not wait to plan our next fit-cation. It got us moving but it was super relaxing too. No pressures and just enjoying what the natural world put before us. I loved that.
If you could go on a fit-cation where would you go?
