One of the great things about living in Northeast Columbia is the opportunity to visit Sesquicentennial State Park without a long drive. Indeed, the Sesqui main gate is right across the road from us!
The Midlands’ hot weather has broken at last. So, with morning temperatures ranging from the upper 60s to the mid-70s, conditions were ideal for a quick visit. Anyway, I needed to renew my annual State Park pass.
Since the Office didn’t open until 11:00 a.m. I couldn’t resist a hike around the two-mile lake trail. Well, “hike” really is an exaggeration. As you can see in these photos, the trail is so wide and smooth, “walk,” or even “meander” would be more appropriate.
And here’s another video with scenes from the trail. It hardly does justice to the scenery along way.
Another great visit to Sesquicentennial State Park in Columbia, South Carolina. Thanks again to Park Manager Daniel Gambrell and his crew for maintaining this beautiful facility.
Stay tuned for a trip next week to Paris Mountain State Park in Greenville, South Carolina!
