Umbrella Rock

Last week we "strolled" over into Alabama and found these big rocks in the Little River National Preserve. This first one is called Umbrella Rock and as you can see it was right in the middle of the road. The other rocks were located just a few feet away. A few miles away is the town of Fort Payne (home of country singing group Alabama).

All your Fall Color-seeking trips make me want to find my way up there so bad! We had planned to go last week, but things just didn't work out. Oh well, maybe next year! In the meantime...I am really enjoying your photos!

Those are as big as the rocks by my house...but not as mossy covered.

They remind me a little of Brimham Rocks in Yorkshire - same glacial deposits but without the trees you have.

Glad to see you discoverd my "Eden" dot..This is where i return every year to shoot. there was probably very little if any water going over the falls. did you make it up to Little Rock City?? That brings back so many memories!!

Annie said...

Ooh, those are marvelous to see. Are they called pedestal rocks? There are some quite magnificent ones that look rather like these in our Ozark Mountains northwest of Little Rock.

Nancy said...

What unique rock formations.Would love to have visited that park when we lived in GA.

Neva said...

AWESOME!

Tossing Pebbles in the Stream said...

Could the rocks have been dropped there as the last ice age receded?
