We took off from our spot at Hartwell Lake the other day to explore northwest South Carolina. To start our tour we chose a 72-mile scenic loop
Moving along on our trek for the day we decided to stop at the Upper Whitewater Falls one of the 30 waterfalls in Oconee County. The overlook is a spectacular spot in the Nantahala National Forest. The falls were thundering down the mountain about 200 to 300 feet with the forest surrounding it. Our photo doesn't do justice to the sight. But we can only say, WOW!
Then moving south on S.C. 107 we soaked up some spectacular mountain and lake overlooks. Here at the Wigington Overlook we came across two hospitable SC ladies who recommended more scenic roadways and local stops. We all enjoyed looking at Lake Jocasee in the distance and the Blue Ridge vistas. Not as spectacular as the grandiose one earlier in the day, but very special in its own way. A secluded and peaceful contrast. This spot made us want to stay a while and watch and listen and smell. Just us. Enjoyed it very much. We decided to complete this day's exploring on that note. There's always tomorrow.
