Welcome to my weekly update for March 20, 2022!
We decided to spend last weekend in Columbia, SC. It’s the capital of the state, but–most appealing to me–it’s also next door to Congaree National Park. We’ve visited national parks in Alaska and Hawaii but we’ve never visited this park, located only about three hours away from our home base in Asheville, NC. It wasn’t my favorite park but it was still a nice place to hike. I’m glad we went in March; I can’t imagine the heat and mosquitoes in this swampy area in the summer! Columbia is legendary in the Carolinas for its intense heat and humidity. We also went to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden, the State House grounds, and Sesquicentennial State Park while we were in the area.

- Congaree National Park. I think I took this picture at Wise Lake.
- The mosquito meter at the Congaree visitor center. I don’t know if they actually change the meter with the weather, but it gives a taste of what this hot, wet, humid area can be like.
- The South Carolina State House
Nothing posted this week but I’m getting back on track in the upcoming week.

I need to choose an unfinished classic for the March prompt in the Classics Reading Challenge. I think I might read Sanditon by Jane Austen since I’ve read most of her other works. My in-laws arrive here Thursday for a few days so I’m not sure how much reading I’ll get done. We haven’t seen them since we left Sarasota last June so we’re looking forward to their visit!
