My time in Sumter National Forest was shorter than anticipated. While driving through, I noticed spring was still waiting to arrive and much of the forest was still relatively colorless. Although still beautiful, I made the decision to drive around and become familiar for another visit, instead of exploring on foot with my camera.
At this time, I am planning to revisit during the fall (my favorite season) to photograph the trees with color. Since the national forest has three ranger districts, with no touching borders, I would like to spend at least one day in each district.
Enoree Ranger District
Located northwest of Columbia, the Enoree Ranger District consists of more than 170,000 acres of land.
Long Cane Ranger District
This 120,000 acre district is located in the Piedmont of South Carolina.
Andrew Pickens Ranger District
Located in Oconee County, with more than 85,000 acres, in the mountainous region of the state.
