We enjoyed our stay at Kings Mountain State Park. York, SC is a historical town with over 150 homes and building either of Historical value or on the National List of Historical Places.

We also visited Kings Mountain, NC.....a pretty little town with great murals painted on some of the buildings. They also have two walking trails....would have loved...

While there, we took time out to feed the geese in the park. They had obviously been fed before, as the adult geese we very aggressive -- I had one in my lap at one point pursuing a treat. It was really interesting seeing them up close like that.
