"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
Maybe I should have called this feature "Uniquely Upstate," since most of the posts up to this point have been about the surrounding areas rather than Spartanburg itself. So far, we have fallen in love with the nearby cities of Greenville and Charlotte, but not yet with our own town.
But, nevertheless, this past Sunday we headed up to Caesars Head State Park (just a few miles from Table Rock) to hike the Raven Cliff Falls Trail. The 4.4 round-trip trail was rated Moderate/Difficult. Turns out it was by far more on the moderate side. We're actually becoming such experienced hikers that it seemed to be a breeze (in fact, the boys were a little disappointed). But it was a nice change of pace, and the recent cool spell has made absolutely perfect to spend the afternoon outside.
And, did I mention that before the hike the boys made breakfast? Breakfast burritos with eggs, sausage, peppers, and hash browns. Our bellies were so full that we contemplated trading the hike for a nap. But, as you can see... we went out anyway. Maybe we have a new Sunday tradition...
