    Sipsey Wilderness/Bankhead NF Mar 2010

    Stunning exploration with AngrySparrow,Pndwind,KingSipsey/BankheadBoy of an area that was beyond my imagination-maybe something out of Avatar. At times rugged, often muddy and steep but in the end another gathering of the band of hammock brothers in an incredible place.

    If you have 15 mins for a slide show (scroll half way down the page and click on slide show to avoid the ads), slide shows has the hammocks and a complete WB system pictured as well as more pics from the hike:

    Great stuff, that looks incredibly beautiful. My folks lived in S. alabama and every time I would drive down to see them, I would be amazed at the beauty and the amount of wilderness there appeared to be. The waterfalls would be such a treat to see. Thanks for sharing, another place to consider.

    Wow, very pretty place -- with many more waterfalls than I would have expected. Thanks for the video!

    Great video, MMan!

    I bought a new pair of water shoes on sale, anticipating a return to Sipsey sometime this year... I can't wait!

    Thank you, for the virtual reality trip!
    Us boys in the north are still waiting for green up. Just watching y'all wading in that water just made me shiver all over...really!
    From 3:32 to the end was absolutely awsome.
    I just have one question for you....was there any available drinking water?

    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
