Who knew the SC mountains were so beautiful? In my simple mind, a lot of human woes would be solved if people got out into our beautiful country more. It really is spectacular. Anne has done a lot of exploring in her corner of the world & has shared several of her favorite hikes. The trail along the Middle Saluda River in Jones Gap State Park was magical. We felt we had stepped into a Lord of the Rings movie. Lovely old trees banked the small river. Huge boulders were everywhere & in many places we could climb out into the river on the rocks. Such a gorgeous day, cool temperatures with a warm sun!
Jones Gap has beautiful back country campsites for those willing to pack it in. No spots for campers that rough it in RVs!
After our relaxing four mile walk, we headed back to our campsite to build a fire & have a cookout! It really was fun to have company! Haven't had guests since Camille visited at Morrow Mt early this summer. It adds to our joy to share our simple life with those we love.
