CONGAREE NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH CAROLINA
After leaving Charleston, South Carolina, we drove an hour and a half to visit Congaree National Park. We knew we wouldn't spend too much time in this park, but had a blast exploring for the day. From the Visitor Center, we hiked the Boardwalk Trail for almost three miles, which led us above the swamps and through the old-growth trees of the park. It was humid, and we saw so many different insects and animals!
