Broad River Trail Hike & Bento Picnic

We always seem to find our way, no matter how ridiculously inept our directions and no matter how far off track we become. So it was 2.15 hours after leaving home that we arrived at the Broad River Trail. Unfortunately, we arrived at the wrong end (really have no idea how this happened) and did not have time to hike the entire trail to see the many cascades and waterfall located near the Dicks Creek entrance. We still very much enjoyed our hike, and found a soft patch of pine needles off of the trail and set down for a picnic lunch. We did not see any other people on the hike and it was wonderful to sit and listen to the birds, frogs, and gurgling water without any other noises to compete with.
