Recently I was blessed with a few days off to go and visit my newest grandchild and daughter in Charleston,the trip there is always a treasure due to the South Carolina scenic route that I always choose to explore.This was my most recent visit....

Tomotley Plantations dates all the way back to 1698.Located in Sheldon S.C in Prince William Parrish.
The original owner was Edmund Bellinger who died in 1706.His grandson also named Edmund ,
inherited the plantation and dies in 1739.
The property is then divided between 14 different family members and their heirs.
In 1860 the current owner Patience Wise Blackett Iznard plants the awesome entrance of Oaks you see here in this image.
The original plantation house is burned by Sherman's troops in 1865.
A new home built by RH.McCurdy in 1910 and
is the existing home seen today on the property and is privately owned.

Previous owners were:
Bellinger-De Veaux-Iznard-Eustis-Bull -Pringle-Hutson-Martin-Havanmeyer-McCurdy-Pringle-and present owners Billy and Barbera Mixon in 1990.

In 1864 the plantation had 1400 acres roughly 138 slaves to help with growing crops of rice and cotton.

High above the village of Werfen, amid the magnificent mountainous world of the Tennengebirge mountain range is the entrance to the world’s biggest explored labyrinth of ice caves. Roughly 44 kilometers.....Located just outside of Salzburg Austria
...we were up there with the birds soaring in the skies...

A 25 minute trek UP a trail and then a five-minute lift taking us up saving us 90 minutes by foot... and another trail 25 more minutes UP...not for the faint hearted ...us coming from just seven feet above sea level we took quite a few rest stopes in that altitude ...once inside with 1 KM accessible only with a tour guide...temperature inside 0 degrees...we started the 700 Hundred steps UP with my husband being the leader of the trek and holding the first lantern in the line of about thirty people ...a total time inside the cave was about 90 minutes.. back down the stairs and on to the trail...plan on allowing for most of the day...the view is SPECTACULAR!!! Every vista a treasure for the eyes!!

Don't miss the castle called Howenwerfen (literal translation "High Throw")that can be seen as you look down from the ice cave trail..also perched on its own hill...we saw the castle for miles driving through the landscape before we reached the ice cave to purchase our tickets...the ride up the winding mountain road is as wonderful as well...a MUST see if you are ever that way...an I-phone image as I had my camera stuffed inside my jacket awaiting the COLD blast of air of the cave...oh and NO PICTURES ALLOWED INSIDE...sad

I wondered if this pristine land with its splendid woodlands and running streams were part of the
imposed exile of the Indians from the white man.a part of the "Trail of Tears"..I was deep in the Chattahoochee National Forest,about 10 miles in to be exact ..doing five miles an hours on those crazy winding roads.At one point a bear cub ran across the road in front of us just as we had said aloud "I wonder if we will see a bear"!!
About the time the Mississippian culture began to decline (1450 AD), the Cherokee began a westward movement, establishing a village (called Tugaloo Old Town) near an ancient Moundbuilder city. Moving west to Nachoochee, the Cherokee inhabited another Moundbuilder city on the Chattahoochee River. Over the years the Creek and Cherokee battled for control of present-day north Georgia, eventually using the Chattahoochee as a dividing line. Controlling an area stretching from the Ohio River south, and west to the Mississippi, the Cherokee would see this erode to little more than the area of present-day north Georgia. In 1838 the Cherokee were forced to leave Georgia on "The Trail of Tears."
