Road Trip day 10: Maymont to Congaree Congaree National Park, SC, Monday, 25 July 2016 3:11am

In the morning we went back to Maymont and saw the bald eagles and gray fox. Anaka did a training session with Monty the bobcat, who was remarkably well behaved and did all of his trained behaviors with only a grumble. We also got to see a turtle feeding before saying our goodbyes.

The rest of the day was spent driving to Congaree National Park in South Carolina. We stopped in Sumter at a brand new deli serving New York style food. A definite oddity to find here. They seemed surprised that we were in Sumter and had managed to find out about them (Yelp).

We have a very noisy campground, but unlike the one at Shenandoah, the noise here isn't people, it's frogs and insects. Something sets off the frogs every half hour or so and they all croak in unison for a minute before quieting down again. The insects are a constant buzz.
