Carrick Creek Trail

posted in: Landscape, Nature, Smartphone | 1

At the risk of angering friends and family who were dealing with yet another snow storm, this past weekend in South Carolina was nice enough for hiking in shorts and t-shirts.

For us that meant taking a short drive up to Table Rock State Park, and walking along the 2 mike Carrick Creek trail.

This trail takes you along the creek, past waterfalls and rolling waters, up towards some lovely views of Table Rock and back down to Pinnacle Lake.

This time of year the natural shade from tree covering is a bit wanting, but it’s also not as humid as it can sometimes get in the warmer months around here!

As the trail raises up from the creek, it can be a bit daunting, especially when it’s early in the year and you haven’t spent much time on the hills around here, but it’s bit bad. It’s a nice start to working your way up to the longer trails that take you to Table Rock and Pinnacle Mountains, that’s for sure.

All in all, not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon, whether we want to bring the camera or just shoot with my iPhone like I did here.

For those of you still dealing with snow, sorry! You’re always welcome to visit! 😉
