South Carolina: Images of the Palmetto State (33 photos)

Today’s photo story is the fifth in a year-long Sunday series, focusing on each of the 50 states in the United States of America. South Carolina is home to more than 5 million residents, and has a landscape that ranges from the salt marshes and plains of its Low Country to the heights of its Blue Ridge region in the west. Gathered here are a few glimpses into the varied and historic features of South Carolina, and some of the animals and people calling it home.

This photo essay has been updated to remove an image that was inadvertently included in an earlier version.
