      Criss-cross applesauce

      We traveled from Aunt Peggy & Sheldon's house to Henderson, NC. I rode criss-cross applesauce all the way to our hotel. Mom drove. It rained the first half of the way.

      Aunt Roz's family is from Hartwell, GA. We crossed over lake Hartwell on our way into SC. In SC, we went passed Clemson University.

      Uncle Grady was a cheerleader for Clemson University more than 50 years ago.
      We stopped at Cinco De Mayo ...

      Courthouse Creek Waterfalls

      ... We crossed the creek to the island to see the waterfall, but it was too icy to get down for a good view. Besides, this was not the one we were aiming for. We followed a steep path up the left side of the waterfall and then continued following a faint, overgrown path heading upstream along Courthouse Creek. There was no flagging tape and the path was little more than nothing at all. The only thing that helped was the snow - we ...

      Wintergreen Falls

      ... came in handy. Once past the cliffs, it wasn’t too bad and there was flagging tape conveniently placed to keep us on the path. Soon, we came out at the huge pool at the base of Wintergreen Falls. We had lunch here and enjoyed the view. The water was still flowing but there was ice all over the rock face - it was quite scenic and fitting for a waterfall named Wintergreen. It was quite cold, ...

      ... up. It was gruelingly steep, but thankfully not too long. When we got to the top of the ridge, the trail turned and headed down into the gorge. It was hard to believe, but the trail was actually even steeper going down. It was so steep, there was no standing up. All we could do was hold on to rhododendron branches and “monkey climb” down. Heading down, I though I heard voices, but assumed I must be hallucinating from the strenuous ...

      Obstinate Opulence

      ... the grounds at this place. All 200 plus acres of it. The house had 40 servants on staff at all times, has 40 bathrooms and a bunch of other stuff. It boggles the mind, to say the least. All this opulence for just 3 people. Yeppers thats the amount of folks that lived here. I was told that they entertained a lot tho. That justifies things, I guess. Who built it ?? Why the Vanderbuilts of course....Next stop----Clio, ...
