About sixty miles from where I live is this fascinating place called Cherokee Rock Village.
The village is located on top of Shinebone Ridge west of Leesburg, Alabama.
This is a view of the valley and Lake Weiss from the top of the village.
Native Americans lived in this area for many years until the Cherokee Indian Removal in 1838 ("The Trail of Tears"). It is believed that the Cherokee and Creek Indians used this area for religious and ceremonial rites.
This area is very popular today for camping, hiking, and rock climbing.
