Searching for sinkholes

Santee St. Park, Sinkhole Trail, Santee, SC
I had been to Santee State Park before but clearly missed cool exploring opportunities. My friend English led us to the Sinkhole trail through the woods to a large limestone sinkhole pond - with a rather large lazy alligator standing guard. It was a beautiful walk through the woods with wildflowers and butterflies.

Fair warning that there may have been more water than usual and the trail isn't very well marked in the areas that water crosses it. No harm done since the walk isn't very far and if you missed a turn you could always back track. We ended up at even more dramatic and fenced in sinkholes and a sinkhole within a sinkhole.
