Since the weather has been so beautiful here in the afternoons, and I don't start work until tomorrow, I have been taking advantage of the good weather and getting in some good hiking at the nature preserve in Historic Latta Plantation. The area is so beautiful and filled with trees, trails, and even horse back riding, which I may take up one of these days. There are a variety of trails to choose from, ranging from low key, to the hill trail, cove trail, and split rock trail. They all wind through miles of forestry, streams, and even a beautiful gem of a lake in the center.
Yesterday, I was out there for nearly two hours exploring the different trails and the nice thing is starting off on one trail and then picking up different ones throughout the walk. It is so quiet and serene there and I am looking forward to heading out there this afternoon for another long hike. The scenery reminds me of the Midwest and the hills, valleys, and crisp air are a nice change from heat, humidity, and flat lands.
I had pictures to show but my phone is being difficult with sending them to my email so maybe I'll take the camera with me for some shots. It's so pretty now even with though most of the trees have no leaves, I can only imagine how pretty it will be when spring arrives. Can't wait to explore some other parks in the area as well.
