Greenwood Furnace State Park is 7 miles from our house. The park offers a network of trails which were originally designed for cross-country skiing (though most of them seem terrible for that activity), but have more lately fallen victim to neglect, as skiers are few and far between and there was never much of a push to keep the trails well-maintained. 267 more words

Greenwood Furnace State Park is one of my favorite places. It’s beautiful, calm and a great spot for an engagement shoot.
