Throwback Adventure – Congaree National Park – South Carolina

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In September 2012 Shadow, Buster, and I Adventured to the Congaree National Park in Hopkins, South Carolina.  Congaree National Park is an approximately 26,000 acre Park containing some of the tallest trees in the eastern part of the country.  Per the National Park website it is:  “part of the country’s largest contiguous tract of oldgrowth bottomland hardwood forest”.  The Park is popular for:  hiking, boating, fishing, and camping.

We had a lovely visit to the Congaree National Park on a memorable journey.  This was one of the stops I planned as we headed back to Massachusetts where we would be relocating.  The Park had lovely trees, beautiful boardwalks through the forest, and hiking trails.  The sun was streaming through the trees adding to the lovely scene. I do not remember how long we spent at the Park, but given the immense size, we explored just a tiny part of this spectacular National Park.  If we are ever in South Carolina again, we will definitely have to plan a visit back to the Congaree National Park (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).
