FINALLY I did something besides work this past weekend!! Y'all know I am working on hiking to as many of the Waterfalls in SC as I can in my lifetime...Ive been working on this bucket list kinda thing for about 3 yrs NOW...last yr I only did a couple and this is the first one this yr..
RILEY MOORE FALLS
NOT a tall waterfall but it sure was a wonderful one! The hike is 3 miles RT. Some red mud was involved! The dogs loved it...and so did my sister and I. WE missed having our old hiking gal Indy...but she was with us in Spirit for sure as she always loved the water.
The falls is 100 ft wide and 15 ft tall and in summer there's a decent swimming hole...the water was COLD and is probably always cold as its fed by the Chauga River
When I binged the river Trout Fishing was mentioned...this river is 31 miles long...
Camping is permited in this area...IF Only we had known we would have planned to spend the night on the river...Maybe this one will be revisited..
A dark cloud came over but nothing could ruin this wonderful day so WE wished it away...
AND It left...
Part of the wonder of hiking in an Oak Hickory forest is the wild woods flowers! WE saw some beauties...several trilliums, jack in the pulpit, and others!!
Hope everyone had a great Mothers Day...I enjoyed mine!!!
