The name Serengeti originates from the Masai word Siringitu and means endless plains. You will see why the Masai gave this region this name as the grassland savannah stretches to the horizon in the South and is only interrupted by the so-called kopjes, These kopjes are bizarre rock formations formed by the weathering of granite outcrops. The plains are the perfect hunting grounds for leopards and other big cats; you will have a good chance to view these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat through the open roof of the vehicle. In the afternoon, you will reach the destination for the day, the Seronera Valley in the central Serengeti area.

Jones Gap State Park Marietta S.C. USA


As soon as you turn on to Jones Gap Road, your spirit is essentially woed.

Upon arrival there is one of two parking lots to choose from, and the driving is done, it is recommended to visit the office and learning center at the upper parking lot before deciding on either one.

Whether your intent is to Cycle, Hike, Picnic, Photography, Fishing, relax or just to bring the kids out to the learning center or playground to have some fun, You`ll instantly realize your nature adventure has just begun.

From the avid to experienced hikers that challenge these trails, the hikes are not for the squeamish at heart, it is imperative to purchase a trail map and orientate yourself with the colored trail markers before you start.

The dangers of rocky, slippery conditions, snakes, wildlife, fatigue, and sheer cliffs I must impart,
so don`t forget (or keep in mind) : Proper attire, a walking stick, plenty of water (if you have room in the backpack, a set of binoculars and first aid kit and maybe a snack), and to fill out a hiker registration form at the trail head on your journey before you depart.

The water constantly moving among the rocks is like a symphony to the ear,
when in reality, it`s literally nature`s livelihood we hear.

Jones Gap State Park Joins Caesar`s Head State Park to encompass over 13,000 acres with over 60 miles of trails for one to explore, with geographic marvels such as: Rainbow Falls, Jones Gap Falls, Dargan`s Cascade, Raven Cliff Falls, Hospital Rock, Weight Watchers Rock and the Rim of the Gap… you can return here  year after year and find another gem to adore.

For whatever reason or purpose you come to Jones Gap to achieve, you will most likely find it difficult to leave.

Greening of the Mountains Festival Sylva N.C. USA


Sylva is the County Seat of Jackson County, situated amidst the Great Smoky Mountains. Sylva downtown, a Main Street community, has many restaurants and shops along its tree-lined streets.


Sylva, North Carolina is the hub of cultural activities and recreational resources. Downtown Sylva has independent businesses, unique restaurants, and quality events for families and visitors. we came to visit here during the festival and it was a very new experience to me.

 

 

The way  there was an amazing sight to see, you can`t remove your eyes from the window… the mountains in the background are amazing.

The Greening of the Mountains festival started the moment we parked our car at the nearby Blue Ridge Inn and exited the vehicle. The senses are inspired immediately by the sights, sounds and smells before me. There are two streets lined with canopies, vendors and one sound stage per street on main street and the west side street parallel with main street.

Starting on the west side street my mouth begins to water from the variety of smells coming from the many different food vendors. As we dive into the crowd of people, our eyes are dazzled by all the many different arts, crafts and agriculture exhibits. Nearing the sound stage (music stage) we have heard since first exiting our vehicle, we find a wonderful delight to the ears as a blue-grass band entertains with much enthusiasm.

 

After stopping to watch and listen and snap a few photos, Eden stops me from continuing on and asks me, “What is that?” I say,”What is what?”  She points to a child eating a Funnel cake. “You`ve never had one?” I asked, as she shakes her head no. “Oh-oh, what a treat you`re in for today”, I say smiling.

After a few seconds of looking around, a couple selling the Funnel cakes are spotted. After buying the 5$ treat, the expression on her exited face was priceless, and the cake was delicious as well.

 

Walking from the west side street we have to walk over a set of Rail-Road tracks to get to the main street side of the festival . At the mid point (halfway) of the tracks I paused, to reflect on just how important these tracks really were back in the day… the heart of towns being the tinny cities, the smalls roads being the veins, and the Rail Road tracks being the main arteries for the small towns.

 

 

Moving on to main street we find many more different and unique vendors, canopies, arts and craft exhibits.

 

 

 

 

 

Nearing the end of our journey, I just have to mention the nice surprise we received from First Baptist Church of Slyva, which was a cup of free popcorn for the two of us.

 

 

The court house is the most photographed area, it`s built on a hill high above all… and has very nice architecture.

Greening of the Mountains Festival Sylva N.C. USA

After a few pictures at the court house together and not far away from our starting point, I turned around and smiled and said to my self … there is a Sylva in many states, if only you know where to look.

J. Verne Smith Park (Lake Robinson) Greer S.C. USA


Lake John Robinson in Greenville County is a 2,250 acre man-made lake on the South Tyger River operated by Greer Commission of Public Works. Public access is provided by a public boat ramp and fishing pier. Put in is a J. Verne Smith park.

Great idea to spend whole day Greenville South Carolina area. Nice view of mountains to North. Lake has a very little boat traffic, a few fishermen, lots of geese, blue heron and ducks. No overnight facilities at park, shelters, picnic tables and outdoor grills. It is very recommended to single or group travelers to park there for the  whole day or as a self lunch break, there is no shops at the park.

My first step was visiting Park Ranger office and it was quiet an experience. I met very warm rangers who explain me about the park and offer me to arrive when it is sunset, they said the park has different view in sunset and showed me some pic… WOW.

Then I went to the deck the view from there was amazing. If you didn`t come for fishing you just can just relax, have meditation, listen to music and when you become hungry, there are grills and you have fresh meal in seconds. For us was enough for the first time some fruits, coffee and Orange juice .

Location: Lake access is Mays Bridge Road of South Carolina Highway 101 a few miles North of Greer.
