Tuesday Trail Tips: Pearson’s Falls

We like to take the scenic route.  Everywhere we go.  We love to get lost and take the long way.  I’m kidding. Siri is just downright mean.  She likes to scare me every now and then by taking me on some back road to nowhere. Once again, I thought Siri was leading us off track.  She took us down dirt road.  Along a river.  … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Pearson’s Falls

Tuesday Trail Tips: Wildcat Wayside Nature Trail

This is one of those places you have probably passed by 100 times and never thought anything of it.  I have seen it all my life on the way to Caesar’s Head or Table Rock, but never took the time to stop.  This weekend we had things to do, but it was too gorgeous of a day not to get out and explore.  The … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Wildcat Wayside Nature Trail

You told me and I finally listened!  Gorges State Park is gorgeous (too much? oh well, it’s true).  From the impressive Visitor Center to the falls themselves, this park is pristine – just beautiful.  There are picnic shelters with huge fireplaces.  Fishing along Bearwallow Creek and Toxaway River.  Trails for every level of hiker (including a section of the Foothills Trail with a suspension bridge … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Rainbow Falls Trail (Gorges State Park, NC)

Tuesday Trail Tips: Sassafras Mountain

  Ok, so I didn’t actually hike a trail… no one was really feeling it, but it was a gorgeous day for a drive and I was curious to see if the leaves were starting to change (this was Saturday 10/14)  And guess what…you can drive right up to the top of Sassafras Mountain – the highest point in South Carolina at 3,553 feet.  … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Sassafras Mountain

Tuesday Trail Tips: Pleasant Ridge County Park: JFA Trail

This hike is pretty significant y’all.  Why?  Because it was my first solo hike.  5(ish) miles of me, myself, and I.  Once I decided that all the noises I kept hearing were just squirrels, and not some serial killer stalking me, it was quite pleasant.  Hiking on a warm October day, with the leaves just starting to show a bit of color, all by … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Pleasant Ridge County Park: JFA Trail

Creative Outlet 102

What a journey we’re on y’all. I wanted to take a moment to revisit my original creative outlet post, which outlined my goals and plans for this blog (life) of mine.  It’s been a little over two months since I jumped in headfirst to a world of creativity, inspiration, motivation, and connection.  It’s such a fantastic, positive outlet for me. I want to live … Read More Creative Outlet 102

Tuesday Trail Tips: Keowee Toxaway State Park

This hike.  That lake.  Those views!  Keowee Toxaway State Park is one of my favorite places to escape to.  With it only being 35 miles outside of Greenville, it’s an easy trip.  We have spent many weekends here exploring the trails, taking in the views, and swimming in the lake.  There is also fishing, camping and a even a cabin you can rent. Keowee Toxaway … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Keowee Toxaway State Park

Tuesday Trail Tips: Whiteside Mountain

Before we get started, I know it’s Wednesday, NOT Tuesday.  I am thinking about renaming this series “Wednesday Wonders” or just plain “Trail Tips” so that I am not tied down to one day.  Because apparently this is a recurring issue that I am not proud of. Anyway, I’ve got a good one for y’all this week…WHITESIDE MOUNTAIN.  I kept seeing picture after picture … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Whiteside Mountain

Tuesday Trail Tips: Issaqueena Falls & Stumphouse Tunnel

Ahhh Labor Day weekend…you are my favorite. Maybe because every year I need a break immediately after the start of school (don’t judge – y’all know back to school shopping, homework, carpooling, and scheduling insanity is stressful!). Or it could be because Labor Day weekend is the last big summer hurrah:  the pool is still open, football has started, the grill is hot and … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Issaqueena Falls & Stumphouse Tunnel

Tuesday Trail Tips: Rainbow Falls

My family loves to make fun of me.  Actually we love to make fun of each other, up until the point of someone getting angry, and then it’s not so funny.   But we won’t discuss those moments here.  My point here is that I thought I was going to John’s Cap State Park until I was probably 12.  Maybe older…I think no one … Read More Tuesday Trail Tips: Rainbow Falls
