Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge

No ones likes to stay in on a Friday, but it sort of sucks when you do not have a lot of money to spend. Here we go again, on another unexpected drive to who knows where. John and I ended up driving south again.

We saw a lot  of trees, flat land, and hay bales, which I don’t mind. I love looking at that sort of stuff. We ended up at the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge. If you follow along with this series you are probably going to see a lot outdoors pictures. We love hiking and love anything to do with water!

We drove most of the way down the gravel dipped road and on the way back stopped off to the side. There are a couple of spots that are kind like beachy areas. We saw a couple of turtles and there were tons and tons of water snails! Okay what you are going to learn with me, is that I love critters!

Most of the rocks were covered in snails.

Basically on this trip I decided I wanted to look cute…. I didn’t realize we were going to be “hiking”.

So here it is, my footwear! Haha. You would think I would learn my lesson. We always end up somewhere with water, dirt, or rocks.

Have any of you ladies ever walked in wedges or heels on rocks and sand? It’s not easy! Of course I would have been fine, but if I see huge rocks that can be walked on, well see ya later, because that’s where I’ll be. We started walking on the rocks very carefully. It started to rain, so we had to turn around and make our way back. Pooey.. Darn. Oh well there is always next time! There really will be a next time, considering we saw rope swings, this river definitely seems like a hang out spot!

Steps up the tree to get to the rope swing.

I was soooo hoping to see a wild turkey or a black bear in the woods. Maybe next time!

I know it seems like I may not be giving you viable information, but you will never have a problem finding things to do in Alabama. I will always keep you in the loop!
