Bobby Brown State Park is located on Clarks Hill Lake (also known as Lake Strom Thurman, but more on that in my next park post) and is a popular spot for camping and fishing. We hiked a nature trail that went across a cool swinging bridge and around a cove. On the walk we saw a huge water moccasin but I didn’t have my zoom lens to get a cool shot (shame on me!).
After hiking we cooled off in the lake and Trey had a great time watching other families bring their boats & jet skis in and out of the water at the boat ramp (I really think he wanted to ride on one of those jet skis).
I spent a ridiculous amount of time photographing a spider that had a web on a reed in the water 20 feet from shore (how did he get out there?!). I’m very thankful for a patient and understanding wife who lets me obsess over things like that. I think it was worth it because I got a cool set of images from it.
This park has been another victim of our current economic crisis. Like Hart State Park, it was recently changed to a State Outdoor Recreation Area. I hope that in a couple years, the park service is able to re-open these parks.
