Black Mountain

Ladies today a friend & I went to Black Mountain. It was so pretty especially with the leaves being all kinds of pretty colors & what not. I took a ton of amazing pretty photos I am going to share with you sweet ladies. But do not let me sugar coat the fact that I would never in my life go back for this reason! Get ready to brace yourself ladies!

We had originally wanted to walk the 4 mile trail. It seemed a good middle with the ones they had. Wrong! It turned out to be a nightmare. Most state parks have colors assigned to each trail here in TN but not this one! In fact yes there was markers but they was placed everywhere & was not colored correctly at all sadly. To get right to the point so I do not draw it out with a long drawn out post instead of hiking 4 miles we hiked 16.7 miles to be exact... Yes you heard right a hell of a nightmare to say the least. I was beyond pissed! & if you think the 16.7 miles was bad it gets even worse.

Once we found a road after the 16.7 miles we noticed that the surrounding area did not look familiar at all & in fact that we was no where near our vehicle :( the trails did not loop at all or anything for that matter so it meant stay on the main road & walk yet again another 16.7 miles or go back threw the way we came & hike another 16.7 miles. I said there was no way in hell I was doing either! I was livid at this point & wanted to find the people who did this damn state park! Who in there right mind could do a total of 33.4 miles? & to anyone out there who can I give you major major props! Good job, way to go... But me & my chicka Hell no! Our feet was already killing us & we hurt all over! We started walking the road when some man who seemed nice enough asked us what was going on! He asked us if we need a ride back the vehicle after he heard our story & we said yes please we would love that. We was so very thankful for him... I am glad he was nice enough to take us back the car. If we had not met him I swear I would have called the cops to come get us...

During the car ride he asked if we was scared to be alone on the trail after what happened. We both looked at him & said what do you mean after what happened? This is where it gets even scarier. He said that the park had actually been closed  a while back for a while because of a murder. He said some man killed his  fiance there & took her body parts to different areas in the park. He said the cops had to search for over 2 weeks to find the parts & that he is in a mental ward now. We both had goosebumps! We decided we was thankful to be alive, as well as safe & sound. We finally got back to our car thankfully. Thanked the man for being so kind then we got the hell out of there! So will we ever go back you ask? Our answer is HELL NO...
