Ruffner Mountain Quarry – Birmingham View

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

Yellow Lady's SlipperToday I took a brief break from my studies and hiked the Quarry and Overlook trails at Ruffner Mountain Park. The highlights were Jack-in-the-pulpit and other wildflowers, several dozen species of birds singing, and a great (if hazy) view of downtown Birmingham. Panoramic of Downtown B’ham 

PS- I’d just like to mention that WordPress is a huge pain in the butt about line breaks. All I wanted was to keep the posts from running together, and to do that I had to throw all sorts of html at the editor to stop deleting my breaks when I saved.
