From Waxhaw Presbyerian we headed south, then crossed the Catawba River. Our next stop was Landsford Canal State Park. However, the day had gotten away from us faster than we had planned. We stopped at the old cemetery at the entrance to the park, but didn’t make it into the park itself. We just didn’t have time to explore it like we wanted
The extent of this cemetery is always surprise because much of it is hidden in trees. There were also several fallen trees that had damaged or obscured some headstones.
It had been another successful MLK Day ramble. The Waxhaws is certainly worth a trip and we would like to head back out this way. In addition to Landsford Canal there are all of the historic battlefields and some interesting geological features to explore. But, for now, we had a long drive back to Greenville.
