I decided to take advantage of the nice weather
and take a drive up to Noccalula Falls Park that
is located in Gadsden, Alabama. With all the rain
we have had in previous days we knew the falls
would be spectacular and they were. The park
is named for a Cherokee maiden, Noccalula, who
plunged to her death, because she would not
marry the Indian brave her father had chosen for
her. She was in love with another.
