Bankhead National Forest
John and I went hiking in Bankhead National Forest / Clear Creek Recreational Area this past Saturday. We had a really good rainfall on Friday, and the bluffs that are spread throughout the trail showcased several beautiful waterfalls. It was an absolutely wonderful day to go, even if it was overcast. The flowers are all beginning to bloom down here in Alabama, and we saw several pink, red, white, and purple flowers. We also managed to see several deer, a groundhog, and a very large frog! I love being outdoors this time of year, and I enjoy the good conversation that can be had when you "escape" the world and all its distractions for a while to enjoy God's creation.
