Matthews Creek

Yesterday, a friend and I did a little scouting for a good camping area on Matthews Creek in South Carolina. While we were there, we decided to do a little fishing.

We found a great campsite, but the fishing was less than spectacular. We did manage to land a few wild rainbows, but they were very small.

Jimmy caught two little rainbows out of this deep pool. We decided that we should try to find a camping area near a more productive stream.

Here is another newt photo. This is the Red-Spotted Newt. It is in the "eft" stage of it's lifecycle. Newts are aquatic when they are young. Then they move to land and live for several years as an "eft". Then they will go back to the water and become aquatic again as a full adult and lay eggs.
