#RunningTo Week 34 in Review: Charlotte, Greenville, Columbia

Sweet Carolina. From North to South, I can’t escape. And I’m loving it.

Week 34 of #RunningTo took me from the Queen City of Charlotte to a couple cities in that other Carolina to the south. Charlotte gave me some great views and, shall we say, eclectic restaurants. Greenville provided quite the artsy park. And then there was Columbia, the capital city with rivers and oversized fire hydrants.

It’s been another wonderful week on the road. Check out my favorite moments from the wandering week that was!

The secret lies with Charlotte.

I’d expect nothing less from Bubba’s restroom.

What follows are some pictures of Symmes Chapel or “Pretty Place” as it’s affectionately known at YMCA’s Camp Greenville. I saw a picture of this place hanging in a Maryland art gallery, and when I saw the chapel was located in South Carolina I immediately determined to go there when I reached the Palmetto State.

Oh man. I love Camp Ridgecrest, but this camp has it MADE. The sunset views were incredible.

    That cat might be my favorite thing I’ve seen on Running To.
