One of the places Betsy and I have visited several times is Little River National Canyon Preserve near Fort Payne, Alabama.  The canyon is sometimes called “The Grand Canyon of the East”.  There is a scenic drive along the rim with several overlooks from which the river can be seen far below.

These pictures were taken in February, 2010, when the river was fairly high and the water was a beautiful color.  We thoroughly enjoyed watching the water rush over and around the rocks in the stream bed.

Both kayaking and rock climbing are permitted in the canyon, but Betsy and I decided to content ourselves with photography.

    Beautiful. I saw every photo in bigger format and I love very much the first photo.

  15. Judy Says:

    The water is a gorgeous colour!! And I so agree with you about the photography, rather than kayaking – how can you focus the camera properly while kayaking?
    And you did get a fair snowfall last week!! Did you get another this week? I have no idea how far south that storm went, but we only got about 5 inches. Toronto had more like 3 feet…
