Long Creek Falls, Oconee County

Another fabulous day of hiking took us to Long Creek Falls near Westminster SC. Long Creek flows into the Chattooga River, after plummeting 50 feet over beautiful cascading falls. This 3.2 mile round trip trek is a moderate hike with an arduous descent to the river, but is certainly worth the trip. The changing leaves added to the beauty along the trail, making this a perfect fall hiking day. Some of us ended the day with some great Mexican food, thank you Jerry!

Lee Falls, Oconee County

We are back in action for fall hiking. After several months of a summer sabbatical, we went to Lee Falls, for the first hike of the fall. It was a great afternoon with perfect weather. The recent rains made part of the trail a bit slippery, but also created a nice flow of water over the falls. I would love to label each picture, but in the interest of time, and getting the pictures on the blog, I'll keep it short. What a fabulous day!
