Took them all at Oak Mountain in Alabama this past year believe or not. Got a few about a month ago. I know the NE Southern States have us on mountains pretty good, but we have a few down here that are pretty fun. That's Kings Chair in the 2nd pic which is a easy climb but with the wind and temp that morning it bit back a little.

Oak Mountain, my back yard.
I have a place in Inverness; mine too.
No sh!t. Small world.
I worked in Huntsville last year and went to this unreal cave system maybe 45 minutes outside town. Can't remember the name but it was fricking awesome.
Northern Alabama is way more beautiful than it gets credit for.

Cathedral Caverns is the one im thinking of. That place was pretty spectacular. Had a frickin underground lake and held some world record that I can't remember right now.
I love that kind of stuff, so the nerdy tour guide was actually pretty fun to listen to.
i think its right off of 72, like on your way to scottsboro
"The cave system has laid claim to several world records though their accuracy has been disputed. Among the caverns' notable features are:
the widest entrance of any commercial cave in the world - 25 feet (7.6 m) tall and 128 feet (39 m) wide.
the largest column in the world - Goliath, measuring 45 feet (14 m) tall and 243 feet (74 m) in circumference.
the largest flow stone wall - 32 feet (9.8 m) tall and 135 feet (41 m) long.
the most improbable formation in the world - a 3-inch-diameter (76 mm) stalagmite which rises at a 45-degree angle from a rock formation to the cave ceiling 25 feet (7.6 m) above.
a Big Room, which is 792 feet (241 m) long and 200 feet (61 m) wide."
if you are bored and have 3 minutes this is a summary of the place i just looked up.
Cathedral Caverns State Park is the perfect field trip for your family, school, church, or other group. Make plans today, and you'll see why we're excited about Alabama's newest state park!
Almost every state is honestly

I used to love going to Oak Mountain. Did a lot of dirt bike riding there as a kid. Actually was a pretty highly ranked BMX rider back in the day as well. They have a real nice BMX track.

Go hiking at Oak Mountain on the reg. Love the place for the proximity.
I've hiked on the Appalachian Trail before and I would have sworn those pics were on the AT in Tennessee or North Carolina. In fact, one of those pics looks almost exactly like the area near Clingman's Dome where we hiked to on our trip.

This thread makes me think of the "Caves" ep of Planet Earth, which was my personal favorite.
It's going to rain like hell Thursday so we'll probably be up at Peavine Saturday climbing the overlook because the falls will be running. Gotta get it in before the shrubs sprout and make it hard. I love the AT but between the Panhandle and B'Ham it's already a long trip.
My favorite part of our AT trip was at night. At that elevation, the sky is stupid clear & the visibility of the Milky Way is unbelievable.
I have some pictures of Sugar Loaf mountain in Arkansas near Blancard Spring that are almost replicas of Weedline's Alabama pictures. Major cave in that area as well.
I saw some great nature scenes kayaking south of Huntsville near Cullman.
I honestly didn't know that Alabama had mountains.
