Astute readers have by this point noted my ridiculous love affair with Table Rock State Park, but I am not ashamed. Since I did my hike up to Table Rock Mountain back in June, I’ve been itching to hike the other main trail there, which is Pinnacle Mountain Trail. I finally got to it this past Saturday.
I took Thursday and Friday afternoons off while my guests were here, and we visited one of the three Greenville County water parks, Otter Creek. We had a great time until we were chased away by a thunderstorm that caused them to clear the park. No photos taken at the water park, so that’s all you’re hearing about that (same for our trip to a second water park a few days later).
On Friday afternoon, we decided to take enormous truckloads of money to Frankie’s Fun Park, where they were exchanged for a minor and temporary reduction in whining and complaining. Really, it was fun, but it was expensive.
Despite the fact that I finally had gotten my girls down to South Carolina for a visit, I still had to work once Monday rolled around. While I spent the day slaving away at the office working for the man, Rachel, Aly, & Leah headed to the Children’s Museum of the Upstate in downtown Greenville.
After taking it mostly easy on Saturday to recover from our respective trips to Greenville, we saddled up on Sunday morning and headed up to Table Rock State Park, which has already become one of my favorite spots in the Upstate. It was a beautiful morning, so we took the awesome drive up to Caesar’s Head first, where we all enjoyed the overlook.
After an exhausting and fun week at Sage Summit, I rode back from New Orleans with two co-workers and we somehow survived each of us taking turns asleep at the wheel. At the same time, Rachel and the girls were making their way to South Carolina after stopping at the Kentucky Horse Park the night before.
