Lake Wateree State Park, Winnsboro, South Carolina May 9, 2016

From Georgia we traveled to Winnsboro, South Carolina and parked at Wateree State Park. The RV front door was right on the lake.

Very Wooded Area, Peaceful 



Our closest RV neighbor

In the area around Winnsboro the roads are very hilly, curvy and narrow.

However, from South Carolina we headed to Virginia over the Piedmont Mountains, Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachian Mountains. At the South Carolina/Virginia state line the highway passes through the 5,412 foot East River Mountain Tunnel, which is one of only two mountain tunnels that runs under a state line. (Guess who was driving this 36 foot motorhome towing a car?) The highway makes a six mile hill climb of over 1,500 feet. North of the Virginia state line at the top of climb the highway goes over the summit of Fancy Gap with an elevation of over 3,100 feet. Wheww we made it, don't ask what the miles per gal were......
