Enjoying Twin Falls in South Carolina.

I knew the author of the guide book Waterfall Hikes of Upstate South Carolina said this was an easy trail but my hope was for a little longer and steeper than what we experienced. The stream that runs beside the trail is beautiful and reminds me more of being close to the Chattooga River than [...]

A Promise Kept

Click on images to enlarge A few weeks ago, I got us caught in a horrendous thunderstorm complete with thunder, lightening, and hail. I had never been as wet as I was that day! And the hail hurt!! We were out in the middle of a forest with no place to shelter. My [...]

King Creek Waterfalls South Carolina

Click on the photo to enlarge. This is one sweet little hike that has something for everyone.

This is a little hidden hike of about three miles round trip. We made it longer by crossing a river and then walking out through a wetland [...]

Now, I’m Climbing Fire Towers! Long Mountain Tower

I'm pretty sure that the same thing that attracts me to this historic fire tower is the same thing that attracts me to lighthouses.
