South, Mt. Cheaha is Alabama's tallest
The weather was amazing and Mt. Cheaha was so glorious with breathtaking views, waterfalls and wild life
In 1933, land was acquired by the State of
Alabama and a cooperative state and federal
effort led to the design and construction of
Cheaha State Park. Trails were established,
picnic areas built, cabins and a stone lodge
constructed atop Alabama's highest point.
Then on July 17, 1936, the president Franklin Roosevelt issued
a proclamation establishing the Talladega
National Forest. Over the seven year period
from 1933 to 1940, Cheaha State Park and
the Talladega National Forest became
national treasures thanks to the vision of
Depression-era leaders and the hard labor
of Alabama workers.
Located in Clay and Cleburne Counties, Cheaha State Park is the pinnacle of natural beauty and awe in Alabama. Surrounded by the Talladega National Forest, this foothill of the Appalachian Mountains holds the reputation of the highest point in Alabama. Standing 2,407 ft. above sea level, it is no wonder why the local Creek Indians named this place "Chaha," meaning high place.
We went to bed at 10pm and woke up at around 9.30 am !!
A cooked breakfast in the restaurant awaited us
With the spectacular view out of it's wall of glass.
No stress, no effort, just rest and enjoying each other.
