Coal Bluff Park

We took a ride out to Coal Bluff park this weekend.  It has lots of camping spots, picnic areas, hiking trail, a playground and even a tennis court and a volleyball or badminton net.  I can't guarantee the courts are in the best repair, but we did go in the middle of winter.  Oh, it has a boat launch into the Pearl River.

The hiking trail we went on needs to dry out just a bit more, but it was pretty cool.  To the left of the trail is the Pearl River.

There are some cool trees on the trail too... or above the trail.
Me in a Tree
There was some scat up in that tree, small Bobcat, I think - too big to have been squirrel.  We saw a Gator trail and lots of Raccoon tracks and a couple Deer tracks.

To the right of the trail are some of the largest Cypress trees I have seen!

I had to photo stitch (using Hugin) three pictures together just to get most of the tree in one picture!  The vertical limbs in the top are bigger than some of the trees around it!  The limb coming out almost toward the camera is bigger round than the trunk in the foreground!
