    A few days on the Foothills Trail

    Me and a couple of old friends started at Oconee, SC, and hiked 30 miles over 2 1/2 days in glorious fall colors and gentle hills. This little trail is a gem. Swam twice in wild rivers and even stopped on the way out at Pumpkintown Junction for an artery clogging country ham and grits breakfast served by old ladies who called me "hon". It just doesn't get any better....

    That looks to be a really nice place! I love getting out when the leaves are changing.

    The shot of the lake and the one with the cascades are just beautiful...
