Tabcat Creek with Brandon and Phillip

Tabcat shoots off Chilhowee Lake at the very beginning of the famed Dragon on Highway 129. Just a small creek but one to explore nonetheless. You can't go very far without your canoe dragging but it is a really cool area. If you are in a kayak you will have some trouble simply because you have to get in and out of the boat so much as the approaching end of the creek (or is it the beginning?) does not contain much water. I really enjoyed the rock formations near the end. According to the Bible God says if we do not praise him the rocks will cry out. He he he. That would be wierd to hear. What would they say? "I am stuck between a rock and a hard place"? I do know that taking these boys out is creating a FOUNDATION for them. I think it was Jesus who said "Those who listen to my words and do them are like a man who built his house on a rock. The storms came, the wind blew and rain beat upon the house but it did not fall because it was built upon a rock." Humm...maybe it is wise to get our kiddos outside and demonstrate the need for a foundation in Christ.
