Camping at Denny Creek Sept. 25th-27th

We went camping at Denny Creek Campground with our friends the Lemmons on September 25th. Sort of a last hurrah before cold and dreary set in. We had the best spot in the whole place(the host even said so). Right on the river and nice and private.
We got there around 6:00 Friday evening, had dinner, surprised Ryan with a birthday cake and song (yay for Ryan's 25th birthday!!), sat around the fire and went to bed.
The next morning it was super chilly, I think it got down to 36° at th coldest. Brrr!
We ate some food and decided to hike around the river. It ended up being really cool following the river upstream. We had a little bit of an adventure climbing up the rocks to get back to the trail. After which we ended up at the trail head for Franklin Falls. It claimed to only be a mile long trail. We decided to check it out. I didn't even know it was there so that was kind of exciting. Well I'm pretty sure it was longer then a mile, but the falls were neat and the scenery along the way was fun. We saw a TON of different types of mushrooms. I've never seen so many and they were ALL along the stretch of trail. I have no idea what any of them are and haven't had any luck looking them up. So if you know by chance, please share.
It was a fun camping trip and I would go there again for sure. It was a nice campground.
