BUCK'S POCKET STATE PARK
Buck's Pocket State Park is a cool little park located just a few miles to the east of Lake Guntersville. When I posted our plans to ride in this area for the 4th of July, a fellow blogger over at Sunny Side Up told us we needed to put Buck's Pocket on our places to see list. Upon Eve's suggestion, we were fortunate enough to find this hidden treasure while riding around the lake area. Thanks again for the tip friend!
The view from up here was not as grand as the Little River Canyon, but still pretty breathtaking. The drop offs and cliffs were a little more intimidating, as you were able to get right up to the ledge.
THE JIM LYNN OVERLOOK
There are signs posted everywhere that permits are required before repelling, so this must be a hot spot for that sort of activity. I can certainly understand it's popularity, since it's full of great places to climb... over the edge.
There's a legend behind Buck's Pocket State Park, that it's the place where defeated public officials go to lick their wounds. After visiting the grounds, I would think going to a place with high cliffs and drop offs, wouldn't be where I'd go after a depressing loss. LOL!
I hope you weekend was great! Here's to an even better Monday!
