Greetings from the Bluff Park Back Porch, way up yonder on Shades Mountain (1,109′) in Alabama:

For the previous week, 0.8 inches of rain fell on BP2 .  The weekly high was 82 and the weekly low was 57.

Where in Alabama ?:
See Attached Pictures.

>   I got detoured with an enjoyable hiking trip to a canyon in NW Alabama.  It is in the Pottsville Formation, massive sandstone, cross-bedded sandstone, and a wonderful joint system that creates steep cliffs.  It also has fluted? or scalloped? sandstone, see Picture 21.  Okay you geologists what is the correct name?
Check out Picture 34, What are those iridescent discs.

Where is it?
