McDowell Nature Preserve

One of the best things about living in a new place is all of the exploring you get to do! Preston and I don't get to spend a whole lot of time together during the days because of his work schedule so when a time opens up that is free for him, we jump at the chance to find some place new to go!
 On the one particular occasion that this has happened to us since we have been here, we headed down to the Nature Preserve that is just two miles from where we are living. It, like everything else in North Carolina, was beautiful! It is a very wooded area with lots of trails to hike around and explore on.
 There is also a little information center where you can go and learn about some of the wildlife that is in the preserve. Preston wanted to stay and learn about the animals but I talked him out of that idea since there were snakes involved and I'm still trying to get over the little snake escapade from back home. Ugh, gives me the chills just thinking about it. 
The preserve is connected to a beautiful lake: Lake Wylie. The day we went to the preserve we just had intentions of going down there and seeing what there was to do. We are planning a trip back there very soon because there is TONS to do.
You can go fishing, swimming, canoeing, camping and all sorts of stuff! It looks like so much fun! We had a really great time just walking around the docks together but are very excited to head back and spend a little more time there! Charlotte hasn't ceased to amaze me yet of just how beautiful it truly is!
