A Very Worthwhile Detour

Hunting Island State Park is located off the southern coast of South Carolina. It's covered by a subtropical forest that extends all the way to the beach, which has some picturesque dead trees. The forest is an unusual mix of palmettos and pine trees. I did not know that a combination like this could exist in nature.
Walking through the forest you get a sense that you're in a prehistoric location. The tree growth is thick and blocks a lot of the sunlight. You feel like the forest is hiding some unimaginable creatures, but all you're likely to see are some small deer (which I've never associated with subtropical forests before). This is a nice place to spend a couple of hours if you're driving from Savannah to Charleston or vice versa. Be sure to get here well before dark, which is around when this state park closes.
