In the fall, my friend and I got a chance to see where District 12 from the Hunger Games was filmed. The arena was also filmed in North Carolina and I have been wanting to go see it.  It's located about two hours away from me in the Dupont State Forest. We took a Saturday and journeyed over there.  It was SO beautiful.  

This is Hooker Falls.  It was a short walk from the parking lot. 

You can see the waterfall from the top and then continue your walk down to the bottom.

Sometimes 5 pictures are just too many for a little explorer!
I don't know the exact location of where certain scenes were filmed around here but the scenery looks very familiar!

Head back to the parking lot and right before you get there you take this bring over to Triple Falls

This was so beautiful but a little scary with my rambunctious little ones. There are lots of signs posted around that say "Caution Rock slippery" and warned about slipping and going right over the edge.  There are no railings or anything. You can walk right to the top of the waterfalls so we had to keep an eye on the kids.

It will be even more beautiful in the spring with all the leaves on the trees!

Catching Fire came out this month. You can buy it on Amazon HERE or from Target that apparently has an exclusive version of the DVD with a bonus disc! 

Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be eva in your fava.
