Cheaha State Park is one of my favorite spots with all of its natural beauty. Last weekend, March 16, 2008, there was a dedication of the connection of the Pinhoti Trail to the Appalachian Trail. Hikers can make the trek all the way from Alabama to northern Maine. I took this picture as I was leaving the ceremony marking the connection with a big marker which shows the blaze and the trail marker if you ever want to hike the Pinhoti Trail.
It always amazes me to see how things change. I had not been to Cheaha during the winter season since the weather is not nearly as good, but it was fun to see things without the leaves. Each season has its own beauty and the lack of leaves meant that I could see landmarks that are not normally visible during other times of the year.
The Alabama Hiking Trail Society conference was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed being with the group talking about hiking and weather. I hope to go again.
