Ian's Journal

Hello everyone! We are very excited to be on the way with this Web of Water adventure…

Starting at Table Rock State Park in Greenville, South Carolina we met with park rangers and a middle school class from Pickens School doing experiments with water. We explored the Blue Ridge Mountains and the headwaters of the Saluda to begin our voyage -- filming on the Middle Saluda River, Jones Gap State Park, and Caesars Head State Park.

Up in the mountains you can really see the connections coming together as streams make waterfalls, and waterfalls make rivers that all make their way down to the sea.
