    Video: Rainy hike in Alabama...along the Pinhoti

    Some friends and I decided to reschedule our trip to hike the Art Loeb, due to the torrential rain. However, we thought it would be a good idea to do a day hike on the Pinhoti instead. I am glad we postponed the Art Loeb trip, my legs are not ready yet for that hike. Today showed this to me. I enjoyed the hike today...but it was seriously wet...

    Looks like a great way to spend a rainy Saturday. Those trails look a little moist.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    I know what you mean. I've yet to see a completely dry trail this year. Creeks and streams normally easily crossed without getting wet are running at "turn back or get wet" depths.

    A perfect example of the recent and current weather in this neck of the woods. But hey, it was a bug free hike.
