Last weekend, Cindy and I spent the weekend visiting the Little River Canyon located near Fort Payne, Alabama. We rented a small cabin and spent Friday hiking around the Canyon.
Little River is unique because it flows for most of its length atop Lookout Mountain in northeast Alabama. In 1992 it was established as a National Preserve under the National Park System to protect and preserve the natural, scenic, recreational and cultural resources of the area.
The water is really down during this time of the year, so we were able to walk down the middle of the river bed in some places. How would would you like to have a view like the guy up on the top of this cliff. I hope that no one in the family sleep walks.
Late Friday evening we ended up at the falls. Cindy was intrigued by the formations of the rocks and asked me to try and capture it. That’s one thing good about the water being down. Normally you would miss a lot of the detail in these rocks.
While hiking I came across this wooded area and had to try out this style.

We stayed in a cabin at Bear Creek which is owned and operated by Randy & Sandy Galloway. They have purchased original pioneer cabins and reconstructed them with the typical modern conveniences on their property a top Lookout Mountain near the canyon.
Saturday morning we visited several shops in the small town of Mentone, before making it back to the cabin to enjoy the SEC Championship game. Cindy and several friends went to the beach back in September. While on their trip they stopped at a winery and purchased this bottle of Chardonnay in Alabama colors titled Champions and she has been saving especially for the SEC Game. Wow, what a game!
