Lynn and I debated what to hike today, long hike or drive to waterfalls, or shorter hikes… I finally decided. To the top of Table Rock, the guide said it was strenuous and plan for 5 hours as it gains 2000 feet from the start.
After last night’s thunderstorms all the creeks were flowing nicely.
As we climbed, it started getting foggy.
But when we reached Governor’s Rock it had cleared up. I heard voices below us while we rested and Lynn was reminded I have a competitive side, we had gotten an early start and I wanted to be the first to summit today.
Back on the trail and back into the fog.
The overlook on Table Rock
I love fog, but not after hiking for 2.5 hours for an overlook. After a quick lunch, we started back down (it’s an out and back)
I bushwhacked down to the creek to see this water feature.
Pumpkintown is on teh far left, I still haven’t seen Table Rock (it’s behind the clouds) ; )
Table Rock State Park in South Carolina. Once I arrived, Lynn and I decided to do the short Carrick Creek Trail which starts with Carrick Creek Falls.
You can even crawl behind the falls.
About a mile into the hike it started pouring, neither Lynn or I brought protection for the iPhones so we went back to parking lot, got plastic bags and since we were already soaked, we started again.
it is a very pretty hike, even in a rain storm.
It stopped raining long enough to take a couple of pictures.
This is what I put up with….
My mom wanted to see what Zoom was about.
Family pictures, how hard can it be to photograph a 2 year old and 2 week old?
