clarityinthought:

if you search for south carolina on tumblr you will quickly notice that all my state seems to have is the wonderful city of charleston. while that is a beautiful part of the state, i want you to know that there is so much more than that!

search furman, search yeahthatgreenville, search lake…

((This sums up so much about why I’m sporadic with posting things on my SC side blog. It is hard as Hades trying to balance out the Upcountry with the Low Country in pictures sometimes. Not to mention in news and whatnot. I think I’ll tag this with some other cities to see if I can get some folks to include the state in tags with their area. Charleston is a lovely city, but the coast isn’t all of the Palmetto State.))

Somewhere between Pickens and Easley, SC

Pretty sure this is closer to Pumpkintown really, but I got this toward the end of my trip, but I had to snap these photos on the way back. The sign because, it’s SC and eight, when it numerically became a state, and with the state outline, the blue and the palmetto tree, yeah the symbolism is too perfect to pass up. 

Also, when I zoomed in with my camera lens I was floored! Someone scrawled a cross, and large numbers on that rock face. My questions: Who? How? Why? If anyone in the Upcountry wants to tell me how this all came about, drop me a line. I’m curious to know what this is about.

The Pretty Place, SC: 

A well earned nickname! This chapel is part of Camp Greenville’s YMCA. However, it has such a lovely view, the camp rents it out for weddings. And this is where my parents got married 36 years ago. I approve of the venue! 

There is one ironic element to this trip. In order to get here, you have to go through Cedar Mountain, NC, because of how the roads are laid out! My grandma used to live in this area, so this was a cinch to find, but for people not from this area, you take Highway 276 up to the NC/SC line and go down Solomon Jones Road to the very end. You can’t miss it.

Greenville, SC 4

If Spartanburg’s defining feature was all the clock architecture downtown, then Greenville’s is all the water related architecture. It’s beautiful looking, though…..Greenville, do you really need Bob Jones University? *Shudder*  *Oh runawayrunawayrunaway!!!!* You’re a nice city to visit though. The last two shots are street level by the way.

Greenville, SC 3. Man made marvels:

This part of the city was so elegant. It made me feel really out of place with all the college students, exercisers, and people in preppy clothes.
