We'd already had a pretty full morning with a play date for Braxton and a meeting for Mama, but with rain on the forecast for the next few days and the beautiful weather we had at our fingertips this afternoon, we made the last-minute decision to join our friends for an adventure through a part of town we'd never been before. Bunched Arrowhead Heritage Preserve is just a short drive from the heart of Greenville, located in Travelers Rest, and is home to many birds, other wildlife, and a rare plant, endangered plant called a bunched arrowhead. We had high hopes that we'd see the plants blooming since it just became the season for them, but we didn't see any this trip.
The trail was a loop that was only a little over a mile long, and we walked through both open fields and tree-covered paths as we hiked along. It was a hot, humid day, which made for several tantrums and extra prayers for patience, but (as always) it was such a blessing to be outside with folks who genuinely enjoy it, too.
I suppose we will be going back to this particular trail again soon so that we can look for those blooms that we missed this time.
Who wants to join us?
