This is one of the areas that we are taking one of our photography workshops/excursions to next month. It is between Charleston, SC and Myrtle Beach. It is in a town called Honey Hill just off RT. 45 back into the Francis Marion Forest. I scouted the area on Sunday and this is what I found!
So many of our bays are almost barren of CP and a find like this is REALLY exciting!
------ ADMIN: Mark, after discussion with others, I removed your map of the location of the CPs. We are concerned that in a short time you would make the following post: So many of our bays are almost barren of CP and a find like this is REALLY exciting! Unfortunately, I visited the area today and discovered that someone had poached the plants and the area is now almost barren of CP. This is REALLY sad!
Hmmm. Do you think it is a good idea to provide a detailed map of the location of CPs? Remember this is a public forum that is available to a wide array of people ranging from conservation-minded CP enthusiasts to money-minded commercial poachers.
Good thoughts all. I debated about it before I posted. What convinced me to post (aside of the group here, and never giving a thought to the public at large) was that there are so few locations left that have such a large population. Thanks for repairing my damage. I usually download satillite images of areas I wish to explore then annotate them with my findings. Unless asked by some one that I trust I will keep them to myself!
Just moved to Florence and your post has me excited. I am already studying the Google earth Photos in hopes of finding this site for a visit... I need a Fix, I miss all the areas of CP's I experienced in South Alabama.
