It's gonna be hot. Everybody was right. Thermometers were reading 100 and the heat index was 104 for my three-day trip to Augusta. But the lowcountry is hot in June. I went up to be with Harriet for a couple of nights and went up and back via Us Hwy 321 through South Carolina. I love that road, but it had been years since I had last been on it. So I went north and then took SR 3 from Estill and on up SR 125 through the Savannah River Plant and into Augusta. It is a great way to go unless you like big trucks, lots of traffic, billboards and nothing to look at. I listened to Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell all the way up and most of the way back and took my time. I stopped when something interested me and did a little exploring. Here are a few photos I shot on the up , there and back: The front door at the old carpenter gothic Methodist church in Estill, SC
