I am really jazzed right now about having the Bankhead Forest so close by, and having the ability to hammock camp there. The thing I realize most is that driving through, you don't really know these splendid canyons are there, because for the most part you can't see them from the road. The best way to get to the scenery is simply to hike in.
And oh by the way, its really largely because of this forum and what I've learned here that I am now decently equipped to hike and camp there with both comfort and a reasonable pack weight (which will only improve over time!). For that, many thanks!
Hangin' round beats on the ground...
