Congaree Creek Heritage Preserve

Today I visited the Congaree Creek Heritage Preserve, just minutes from downtown Columbia. It is truly an amazing place, and it's pretty amazing that it is so close to downtown. It reminds me a fair amount of the Congaree Swamp National Park about 20 miles south of Columbia. It features a 2.5 mile trail that for the most part is pretty easily navigated, though it's wise to wear sturdy shoes. It took me about 1.25 hours to walk, stopping for a few photos. I didn't see too much wildlife - just a few birds and squirrels. I heard something that sounded an awful lot like a rattle, but I didn't hang around to investigate further. ;-)
