Abandoned Dolly Cooper

Dolly Cooper Park and Kayak Launch-016

After our Water Wednesday excursion to check out the new ADA kayak launch on the Saluda River in Pelzer I’d mentioned that it was a shame that the one upriver at the Dolly Cooper Park near Powdersville was no longer available.

Down by the Riverside

Riverside Cemetery Asheville-060

I left straight from Comicon and headed downtown for the Our World Festival. Continue reading “Drumming at the Our World Festival”

Smyrna ARP Church and Cemetery-002

Alan had a list of places he wanted to explore. That’s always a good thing. I got an e-mail from him several weeks ago with an attached Google Map showing places in Western York County, including the communities of Smyrna, Sharon, and McConnells. Our schedules finally aligned so that we were able to go on our photo trek this past Saturday. Continue reading “Exploring Western York County – Part One”
