After 21 days, I finally caught up with Jim in the deep south, taking many backroads to a beautiful spot in the middle of the Ernest F. Hollings ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge in South Carolina. The ACE Basin National Wildlife Refuge helps protect the largest undeveloped estuary along the Atlantic Coast, with rich bottomland hardwoods and fresh and salt water marsh offering food and cover to a variety of wildlife. ACE Basin stands for the Ashepoo, Combahee, and Edisto Rivers, which form the estuary and parts of the Refuge boundary. The entire basin encompasses more than 350,000 acres, of which the Refuge comprises just less than 12,000 acres. We camped along the shores of this spectacular estuary. The picture is of Jim off for another 30 miles this morning. We will meet up again near Charleston at the end of the day.
