A Walk Along the River

June 12, 2018

Desoto State Park in Alabama is one of our favorite places to visit, and we’ve been there several times. The photos in this post were taken during a birthday trip Betsy arranged for me in March, 2013.

We originally went to Desoto State Park for the waterfalls — there are five in the park — but on this visit we hiked a trail along the West Fork Little River within the park. Since it was very early Spring, there weren’t many people around and we had the trail to ourselves.

There were parts of the river that had rapids (as can be seen in the first photo), but along other parts the river was calm and serene.

As we hiked, the channel got smaller and the water got more shallow.

But all-in-all it was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday with My Beautiful Bride.
