On Friday, most of the group drove over to Huntsville to tour the Huntsville Botanical Gardens and the US Space & Rocket Museum. We had planned to go but, in my new roll as the clubs rally coordinator, Bev and I went over to the Fort Payne area to check out three campgrounds as potential rally sites. Unfortunately, none of them would do for our larger rigs but the day wasn’t a total waste as we had two enjoyable experiences.
The first was a visit to the DeSoto Falls in the state park and it was pretty impressive, containing a dam and the 107 foot falls. The A.A. Miller Dam built as a hydroelectric project in mid 1920’s, and it is followed by the first natural falls and ending with the lower falls that dumps into a beautiful pool - pics from the web with the second one being what we saw from the visitors overlook.
