Carolina Camera: Walk through the historic tree trail in Sloan Park

What does a certain tree at a park in Rowan County and the Mars Rover have in common?  Nothing.  And everything!

It’s all about traveling through outer space.

Take a trip to Sloan Park in Mt. Ulla and you will find a tree called the Moon Sycamore.  It’s aptly named because the tree has been on a trip to the moon.  Well, sort of.  It’s a fascinating story that began back in the 1970s aboard the Apollo 14 mission to the moon.
