It's great to see another Forum member from Bama! Your timing could not have been better regarding the tornadoes in west Alabama--it was a scary day. I used to do a lot of camping in Cheaha during my college years...good times! On my first camping trip to Cheaha, my friends neglected to tell me that Cheaha was in a dry county...needless to say I was better prepared on my next trip to Cheaha.

Nicely done--I spent a decade teaching at UAB (and an unconscionable amount of time in the Talladega National Forest). "Wild" Alabama really is a hidden jewel.

Good to see I'm not alone and Roll Tide. I don't know what kind of friends neglect that kind of information, especially being college aged. Glad to hear you got some good times out of it though. I'm sure we'll be going back, it's a great spot and not to far from home.

It really was a hidden jewel to me, I've lived a couple hours from there my whole life and never even thought to go there. I'm sure I'll being seeing a lot of it now though. I don't know why you are putting Wild in quotation marks, have you not seen the Bear Grylls episode were he survives the wilds of Alabama? The man was lucky to make it out alive.

I did have a student bring me a plate of chitlins once that might have tested his resolve...


At any rate, definitely a lot of solitude to be found--check out Lake Chinnabee if you've not already, if you're back up toward Cheaha again.

Hello from a fellow Alabamian!

Great shots - I like the centipede a lot.
