Uwharrie National Forest

This is a little bit out of time, but we went to North Carolina this summer and I am finally getting around to blogging about it. All of our NC trip is split into three parts: hanging out on the lake/ocean, glass blowing, and going for a hike in the Uwharrie.

Jasmine and I have hiked in the Uwharrie a couple of times before and it is a fairly nice place to hike. It is a pretty generic forest: rolling hills with a lake, a bit on the swampy side, and covered in mid-sized mixed trees. The hike we went on this time was a pleasant and an easy hike, but there was a good reason for that Рwe had our nephew on the trail with us. Overall, I would say 8 out of 10 would hike again Рhopefully when it is cooler and less humid.

Our fearless leader.

There we a lot of spiders and spider webs on the hike - I think this butterfly may be part of the reason.

Look! Generically pleasant hiking trail! I quite liked it.

This backed up stream was quite gross and the blackest water I have ever seen.
