Tuesday, July 4th
Stoddard Lake

This morning we noticed some of our camp neighbors leave. I expected that since it was July 4th today and there would be no fireworks nearby.

It's about a half hour drive to Weaverville. When we arrived, we saw them starting to get ready for a July 4th parade and fireworks. We visited the gas station and grocery store, then the in-store Starbucks for some brief Wifi before heading back.

After the Weaverville visit, we hiked to Stoddard Lake.

After the hike, we came back to a mostly empty campground. There were still a handful of campers, including our nearest neighbor. After dinner, we waited for darkness and were a little surprised that we didn't really hear any fireworks. A couple small firecrackers and that's it. I'd expected a little more, even though they're prohibited in the area.
