Carrick Creek - Oolenoy State Park

Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway
Cleveland, South Carolina

My Tripometer: 30 Minutes * 1 Mile * +0 Feet

 Oolenoy State Park

From Sassafras Mountain we drove down to route 11 and headed east on the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway.  It was still early morning and I was awe inspired by the misty lake.  I swept the frost off the ground to form a small snowball but it melted before I could toss it at my kids.


I spent about 20 minutes here wandering around but barely touched the possibilities of this park.  I imagine that this might be a popular place in the hot and humid summer months.

We continued our drive east down route 11 and to my surprise, we ran into...

CLEVELAND, SOUTH CAROLINA!

Really?!  So, not only did I climb to the highest peaks in two different states in two days, I stepped foot in two different Cleveland's as well.  This was completely random and astonishing because I am from Cleveland - Ohio.  Hmm, a new mission for this trip?  Wait and see...
