AL - A Pair of Waterfall Wonders

   I'm back on my original waterfall search...gotta see at least 1 in each state we go to!!!
Here in William Bankhead National Forest, we found 2!!!!  Oh, yeah!!!  The weather was perfect and there had been a plethora of rain allowing for a fabulous flow!!!
Day 1
Restaurant where we ate after the waterfall
It overlooked the Sipsey  River...
Golddiggers at the Lakeside Inn
The adult beverages were fabulous...yummy!

Day 1-Path to the falls-
not too steep

Day 1

Day 1-One and a half waterfalls!!!!

to get wet...what a sport!!!

about standing behind a waterfall

Day 1
A baby pine cone Carl found for me on
our hike
Day 2-our fried chicken
and potato salad picnic...

Day 2-the rocks beneath this gorgeous
cascade are so smooth, people
slide right down them into
the pool in warmer weather
