As a welcome to another South Carolina summer I did what not a lot of brave Carolina souls would do…go visit a swamp. In my, almost, 20 years as a Columbia native I had never gone to visit Congaree National Park. Not the case anymore. With the mosquito meter reading at 2.5 (I’m thinking it should’ve been higher- I would hate to see 6!) and armed with my camera I set out on one of the hottest days of the year to capture what this place is all about.
