Table Rock

     This past weekend my wife and I took a trip upstate on the motorcycle to Table Rock State Park in Pickens, SC.  Table Rock is a very nice place located  in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.                  According to history the mountains got their name from the Lower Cherokee Nation, who called them Sah-ka-na-ga  which translated means The Great Hillls of God, but Table Rock got it's name due to the eating rituals of the chief . He would sitand eat from a rock that resembled a table top at every meal, these same meals came from the established hunting camps of the area. This land was part of the Hopewell Treaty that was signed in 1785. As it sits now it's a beautiful park with waterfalls and a places to camp and swim. It also has plenty of trails for hiking and looking out at amazing views.
