I have really been aching to get outside and hike or doing something outdoorsy. This is so hard to believe as I have avoided the outdoors as much as possible for the past 30 years.
Anyway, it has been so dang hot here that an outdoor hike just seems out of the question. DH has reluctantly agreed to a short trip to the mountains of North Carolina (or someplace that might be cooler than here) and I am trying to plan it. We will leave on a Friday afternoon and drive back to SC Saturday night so we need someplace within a 2 to 3 hour drive of Columbia, SC.
After searching the Internet, I am considering Chimney Rock, Dupont Forest, or possibly just driving down the Blue Ridge Parkway trying to find waterfalls with hiking trails. I get such great advice here on 3FC, that I thought I would check to see if anyone has any recommendations on this too.
Thanks in advance!
