Originally, Huntsville was called the Town of Twickenham. Therefore, the Twickenham District is located in the oldest part of Huntsville. The architectural variety and the history of the area makes it a fun place to visit.

Gwen and I took two of our dogs (Blue and Buddy) hiking last Saturday. We followed the Burritt Nature Trail in Huntsville, Alabama.
It’s a great place to hike and explore. You will find interesting foliage and caves. However, the trial can get pretty rocky at some points, so you have to watch your step.
As you follow the trail, you will find a clearing in the woods and at the edge of that clearing is a massive cross. The cross was built in 1963 by the Huntsville Ministerial Association.
The trail then continues behind the cross. At this point it is steep and extremely difficult to navigate. The trail takes you up to the top of the mountain. The view up there is extraordinary and well worth the effort.
We took a rest break at the top of the mountain, then we went back down to the clearing, and continued to follow the trail.
It took us two hours to complete the entire trail. When we got back to the Jeep, we were all sweaty, dirty, stinky, hungry, and completely exhausted.
Beauty surrounds us everyday, but we are often to busy to notice it.
Take time to look around you. Take time to look at the mundane things from a different angle. Take time to pay attention to your surroundings.
You may be surprised by what you find.
Last week, I walked around downtown Huntsville, Alabama. I enjoyed myself and took several photos of the area. I hope you enjoy my pictures.
I found this little spider in the backyard. It was working hard on its web. I took the pictures and let it continue with its work.
