I visited Botany Bay preserve in October. In regard to rattlesnakes, they populate the state at large so you always have to be aware of your surroundings. I enjoy the wildlife and have a great respect for any reptiles that I encounter. No big whoop. The preservation area is nothing less than outstanding and glad that we can all enjoy it now rather than the elite few. My hat is off to the A.C.E. Basin Project as well by opening up over 6,000 acres to the public over the last few years. Not sure I agree with the hunting as there are plenty of places already to hunt dear in the state. Enjoy your state and lands.

SC Scenic highway 174 was named this week by the Federal Department of Transportation as a National Scenic Byway from the McKinley Washington Bridge to Palmetto Blvd. The effort was led by the Edisto Island Open Land Trust. This is a major step forward for the tourism economy and for efforts to preserve Edisto's rural scenic beauty. Much of SC's tourism industry is built upon our natural beauty and preserving the resource is critical to preserving the economy.

Rob, you sound like a tremendously whiny daffodil. If walking outside and getting all hot and sweaty is an inconvenience for you then maybe you should just stay at home and watch the Discovery Channel, unless of course it's a program about snakes, we wouldn't want you to soil yourself.

I grew up near edisto and botany bay and spent most of my summers there. I hate to see Edisto get any more commercial than it already is. Go Edisto Island preservation alliance. Where do I sign up.
