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.

Had to stop and see this on the way home.

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.
