“Summers had a logic all their own and they always brought something out in me. Summer was supposed to be about freedom and youth and no school and possibilities and adventure and exploration. Summer was a book of hope.” ― Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
With plenty of warm weather, summer is an ideal time to explore the natural world that surrounds us. Northern Alabama is home to beautiful forests, parks, trails, and landmarks that inspire our sense of adventure. This week we share a few of those natural places and encourage all of our readers to get out into nature this summer.
