Lake Guntersville

I went to Guntersville, Alabama, today to deliver parts with my husband.  We stopped by Lake Guntersville State Park, where we camped for many months at a time when my hubby did a job down there a couple of years ago. We were saddened to see the devastation done to the park by the tornadoes that ripped through our area in April of last year.

Our camper used to sit by the little bare tree there to the right. If you click on the photo you can probably see it better.  There's a dock there, too.  There were lots of pine trees. They were some of the tallest pines you would see in this area. I can't believe they are all gone.

Here's a photo of how it used to look (bad photo, taken at night obviously - sorry):

Isn't that so sad? :(

This is the first place I saw an American Bald Eagle. This is the first place we camped with our camper. It will always be a special place to us. We were so sad to see what the tornado did. They are rebuilding the park though, so that's good. Of course, those trees can't be replaced.
