Helping Haiti Rescue Efforts

No scam here. This is for real. If you'd like to donate to the relief efforts in Haiti you can do so by texting the word Haiti to 90999 from your mobile phone and you'll be billed $10. If you're suspicious you can check the following State Department site for confirmation (last paragraph).

I don't do this very often but here is a new blog that seems like a good compliment to this one. 


Kings Creek Falls

Just up the hill from the wild and scenic Chatooga River is Kings Creek Falls.  This is a good one to catch  on the way to Spoonauger Falls and Ellicott's Rock.

Park at the Burrells Ford Campground parking lot, then take the Foothills Trail, near the entrance to the parking area, to the falls. They're not hard to find.  On the way back to Greenville, you might want to check out Isaqueena Falls and Stumphouse tunnel.

Distance from downtown Greenville: 66 miles.
