We took a relaxing carefree bike ride along the Lower Saluda River. The view was beautiful & riding under all those trees was a nice way to cool off. Many great spots for selfies

The family spend a day in this park during the reunion. Although it rained for a period, we stayed in a covered area. It was larged enough for everyone can play and have a good time.

We came to do trails. We couldn't necessarily follow the map but we ended up Geocaching instead. The park was idyllic. A lovely day out.
