We finally meet. My first encounter with a water moccasin in Congaree national park, South Carolina. I am glad she was coiled under a bridge and we didn't cross paths.

It wouldn’t be a road trip without visiting a new National Park. Congaree is gorgeous! #congareenationalpark #congaree #kidsinnature #kidsinparks #nps #findyourpark #southcarolina #nationalparkservice #nationalpark #juniorranger #optoutside #roadtrip #eastcoast

The lethargic waters of the cypress swamps in the south flow slowly because of the low drop in elevation, which allows thick vegetation to grow in the water and along with the banks. And as a result the streams and lakes get this yellowish brown tint, which resembles strong tea or coffee.

Head out into the wilderness to find the wonders that the world has to offer. Rare treasures are there to be found, deep in the recesses of the forest. Enjoy the journey and soak it all in. And keep your eyes open, for you never know what might be out there! [Picture: First record of a Limpkin in Congaree National Park, South Carolina]

I finally had a chance to hike in Congaree national park in South Carolina. What a treat! Bald cypress woods lining swampy creeks full of reptilians of all kinds, a dream come true!

As a Globally Important Bird Area, Congaree National Park sees many winged visitors and residents alike each year. This past week, the first ever sighting of a Limpkin (Aramus guarauna) was recorded deep in the wilderness of the park. This bird is typically seen only in Florida, where it feeds almost exclusively on apple snails. What brought this unique bird to the park? While we do not know exactly, it seems to be finding food and is healthy. We do not know how long it will stay here, but if you plan to come to the park to see this rarity, please be prepared for hiking in wilderness in the summer with plenty of water and insect repellent.

On the road to Congaree, SC:
You probably noticed that I had a bit of a hiatus from instagram. I’m sorry for that. I needed time to process. Travel, for me, is one of the great equalizers in my life. With to much yin, there needs to be yang, and vice versa. I needed a buffer to think, for a time. The road was healing. It was profound. It was centering. As I pondered which photo I would post, I kept centering back on this one. It’s not a particularly groundbreaking photo. It’s simple. Easy on the eyes. It’s been done. It’s no more remarkable than any other travel photo, the road stretching onward into the unknown — it easily answers the question of why we quest...the allure of the unknown...what’s over the next hill? The irony is, however, that I was actually getting quite lost in this photo. My GPS had dropped out and I was being directed down a path that would request I take a left directly into a tree...no actual left available...only a tree. The fact that I kept zeroing in on this photo is not lost on me. I WAS lost. Profoundly. On all levels. My personal GPS had long been unplugged. For a time, I just drove, in life, and onto this very road. I had forgotten myself. Soon after this photo, however, I would find my way. I would hike into the darkness, pitch black, tunneling through the abyss with my headlamp. I would stare off into the stars, alone, truly alone, for the first time in many years. I would curl in a fetal position as the temperature dropped to freezing. I would awake to the sounds of life all around me.
I would emerge...
I would emerge..
I would be me.
.
.
.
Have you ever lost your way?
How did you regain traction?
How did you get back to your center?

Had a #long #exhausting day yesterday that was met with a #beautiful #detour outside of #columbia at #congaree #nationalpark, #home to the largest intact expanse of old growth bottomland hardwood #forest in the southeastern US. It had just #rained and the visitor center had just closed. I was the only one on the #trail and my little #southwestern #soul was so #grateful to be surrounded by such an abundance of #greenery. The air breathed in was heavy, warm and so welcomed. Just me, the trees, the various sounds and the #humidity. It was just what I needed...also the #trees here grow super weird and have large wide trunks and there are little stumps everywhere. Humbled to be able to #travel and discover new things daily. #southcarolina #nofilter🌲🌿🍃

This is cute. Like in a pat on the head sort of way. 😆 // "We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. .
"Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. .
"Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, 'This is the problem I want to have.' .
"'I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.'" .

In this picture, you are seeing the flashing of a single bug, and you can notice it is quite different from the Smoky fireflies. The Photinus frontalis flashing pattern consists of a quicker flashes at regular intervals of less than a second, which register on photographs as circles rather than the short light trails of the Photinus carolinus the synchronized fireflies of the Smokies. This was the first firefly photograph I ever took, and I will conclude this series of posts with it. Hope you enjoyed it!

Here’s to hoping for no more river sludge. 💦 // SCDHEC + the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers want SCE&G to reconsider the shelved plan of •removing tar from the bottom of the Congaree River• — after they alleged SCE&G falsely stated last year that the groups told the utility firm that the project could not be done. // The toxic tar was discovered in the river just ~8 years ago by a kayaker and determined to have leaked from a Huger St. gas plant in the early 1900s. 🌊 // 📷: @realadampowell

Congaree National Park in early spring. Note the flood marks on the trees. And those “knobs” sticking up from the ground? Those are part of the cypress root system, so that they have the ability to get what they need even in flood conditions.

The trees were big

For firefly viewing, Congaree National Park has been recommended by the National Park Service as an alternative to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There, you can sidestep the hassle of the lottery, mandatory shuttles, lines, and crowds. https://qtl.us/2MG62T3 #congareenationalpark #congaree #nationalpark #southcarolina #fireflies

Species #34: Redfin Pickerel (Esox americanus americanus)

The Redfin Pickerel is a subspecies of the grass pickerel native to the Eastern US. It is a small member of the pike family that inhabits swampy and tannic waters. Like its cousins, redfin pickerel are agressive ambush predators. Redfin pickerel have a pretty stellar color pattern, usually with bright red or orange fins!
.
My only two redfin pickerel came from Congaree National Park in SC. They were both tiny, but i cant wait to catch a bigger one.

The swamp that is Congaree National Park is a real sight to behold. Stepped on a huge cottonmouth and it slithered out from under my foot without striking at me. Good thing we had our snake gaiters on! Captured this photo in early spring. Note the moss levels on the trees that serve as watermarks for the river that frequently floods the swamp area. Large cypress trees and all kinds of reptiles lurk here - a very different and exciting visit!

The Badlands is so named because the park is notoriously difficult to traverse. Formed by sediment deposits and then carved out by river erosion the rocky terrain is a spartan challenge for hikers. 🌀🤘
.
The views are nevertheless glamorous and the park is a challenge worth celebrating. 🌄🎉

Species #24: Threadfin Shad (Dorsoma petenense)

The threadfin shad is a small baitfish common in big waters of the Southeast. They are named for their elongated dorsal fin. They are commonly caught in cast nets and used as bait to target larger fish.
.
They are often said to be uncatchable, but by dumb luck i had one reaction bite this small rattle trap on the Congaree River! Definitely not what i expected to reel in, but a lifer nonetheless.
