December 16th, 2015 – Congaree National Park – Columbia, South Carolina

On Tuesday December 15th we arrived in Greenville, SC to visit family and friends for the Christmas holidays.  On Wednesday, Don and Brandon went to Columbia, SC to visit Congaree National Park and to try some breweries.

Congaree National Park preserves the largest tract of old growth bottomland hardwood trees left in the United States.  It contains over 26,000 acres of lush trees, some of the tallest in the Eastern U.S., forming one of the highest temperate deciduous forest canopies remaining in the world. The Congaree River flows through the park, and about 57 percent of the park is a designated wilderness area.   A lot of the park is still recovering from the flooding that hit South Carolina.

Afterwards Don and Brandon tried out the River Rat and Conquest breweries.  They found both of them to be quite good.
