The Sope creek area is absolutely beautiful. We explored a civil war era paper mill and cotton mill ruin along the Sope Creek. It’s amazing how much nature has reclaimed after 150 years.
November and December had been absolutely miserable weather wise. January first was one of the first few beautiful days so we decided to go out to Sweetwater Creek State Park and the old cotton mill Sherman burnt down. Our friends Lee and Carlton tagged along and we had a blast. Fun fact is this is where Hunger Games shot the outside of District 13 in the latest movie.
