a very "pretty place" *LOTS* of pictures

Last weekend we took a little road trip up to the mountains. My mom has always wanted to visit Pretty Place - a tiny chapel on the top of a mountain that a lot of people have gone to get married.

On the way up, we stopped at a place I've been before. Not sure if it has a name but its a super cool little spot to go. Basically, its a big rock face on the side of the mountain. Its got great views, but sadly the entire surface is littered with graffiti. In a way, I'm almost in awe at some of the spots people have gone to paint though.

little bridge on the way in:


I love the texture


view from as low as I was willing to go (keeping in mind I had to walk back up and was not wearing the best shoes!)


look how steep this part is - I wasn't even going to attempt walking anywhere near it yet its covered with paint!


I think this was the view across at the top


Then we got to Pretty Place. It was much tinier than I was expecting but the view was great.










the view


Pretty Place is actually part of Camp Greenville - a campground and summer camp from what I gathered. Driving in and out we passed this little area that almost makes me sad I never went to camp!







fishies!


and lastly, a neat little fountain just sitting on the side of the road.

its pretty much the border of North and South Carolina. I never actually saw anything say North Carolina but a few times we passed a "Welcome to South Carolina" sign. Odd, no?

I'm really not that familiar with the area, but if you can find anything about Caesar's Head, its a few miles from there.
