Elsewhere, The African Plains

Hunting Island State Park, SC

In other parts of the state park, we almost expected to see lions laying in wait for gazelles. This a bit of an optical illusion, though, driven in part by our ignorance of Africa, no doubt. What you see here is marshland, rather than grassy plains. But it’s yet another contrast to the beaches, semi-tropical forests, and wastelands you find just a couple of miles in any direction. Did I say ‘this place rocks’ already?

Wasteland

Hunting Island Beach, South CarolinaNot really, but the southern edge of Hunting Island Beach is covered with a small forest of these dead trees; obviously consumed by the encroaching tides. It’s quite a contrast to the leafy, jungle-like, forests just a short walk away.
