Florala State Park - Florala, Alabama
Jackson Lake - George C. Wallace Park
My Tripometer: 45 Minutes * 1.25 Miles * +0 Feet
Welcome to Alabama and the city of Florala, which I assume was called this because it's on the border of FLORida and ALAbama, hence FLORALA. Driving up the road we saw a lake off to the right, hence became our next hike...
This was a huge lake. No chance we could hike all the way around it. We met a local here with a very thick southern accent. He said that you can kayak out to a secluded section of this lake and run into alligators. The area is known as the Bahamas. Interesting, sounds cool. Hmm, maybe when I'm done hiking 1000 days in a row I will begin kayaking 1000 days in a row. Just an idea...
