Cane Creek Canyon Nature Preserve - Alabama, United States

Story:
This was a 9.1 mile hike in the Cane Creek Canyon Preserve.

Regarding the map and statistics, I hate that the battery on my iPhone ran out and when I turned it back on when charged, it logged my trip as finishing around Cullman.  Just zoom in on the actual hike area to see the actual hike.

Tucked away in the most northwestern corner of Alabama near Tuscumbia, Jim and Faye Lacefield have amassed more than 400 acres of land and opened it to the public. It is a treasure-trove of waterfalls, rock shelters, and giant boulders carved out of a type of rock known as Hartselle sandstone. These unique formations have led to many microclimates and microhabitats supporting numerous rare plants, wildflowers, and over 100 tree species. The Lacefields have graciously opened this jewel to the public year-round at no charge. There are over 11 miles of hiking trails, several maintained camping sites, and many spots for picnicking and wading in the creeks. 
Tips:
For more information on this treasure, log onto "Friends of Cane Creek Nature Preserve" on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Friends-of-Cane-Creek-Nature-Preserve/126802417335447 ). Also, much better photos  can be found at: http://kelcom.zenfolio.com/canecreekcanyonpreserve. 

Is it a coincidence that you landed on this page by mistake? Maybe God wanted you to be here on purpose. If there is an emptiness in our heart or you have unresolved issues, maybe you can find answers in some of my notes on the Christian life, which can be found at: SwordNotes

If you are not much into reading and researching the information on God's Word, perhaps some videos may be helpful. A great library of videos is available at: Message Videos


Enjoy!
