South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has spent the last several days in Argentina, he tells The State.
Sanford said he had considered hiking on the Appalachian Trail, an activity he said he has enjoyed since he was a high school student.
"But I said 'no' I wanted to do something exotic," Sanford said "... It's a great city."
Sanford said he was alone on the trip. He declined to give any additional details about what he did other than to say he drove along the coastline.
When asked why his staff said he was on the Appalachian Trail, Sanford replied, "I don't know."
Sanford later said "in fairness to his staff," he had told them he might go hiking on the Appalachian Trial.
