Neversink Pit- can't believe I'd never heard of this place until today! "Neversink pit is a limestone sinkhole in North Alabama. It’s one of the most-photographed sinkholes in the world because of its beautiful fern-covered ledges and waterfalls. The hole is about 40 feet wide at the top, but it expands to 100 feet at its bottom, which is 162 feet from the ground. Neversink is home to bats and several rare and endangered fern species."
Buck's Pocket, a 2,000-acre park in northeast Alabama is secluded in a natural pocket of the Appalachian Mountains chain. The park's picnic area offers a canyon rim natural vista into the pocket below. The pocket itself, is on an upstream tributary of Lake Guntersville.
