Sunday we went on an adventure to High Falls. It's up around Bucks Pocket and Lake Guntersville which is an area we love to visit so we'd been wanting to go for awhile.
Loaded down with our towels, swimsuits, a cooler of snacks, sunscreen, water shoes and puddle jumpers, we were ready. (admission is free but there's a donation box)
When we got to the falls, the first thing we did was go stand on the bridge. (you can't actually see the falls from the bridge because of how they fall)
I got the kids water shoes and they both seemed to like them, but the bottom is VERY smooth rock (and because of the fast moving water, very little algae/moss) It was easy to walk on barefoot.
That guy who looks like he's standing in the water was actually cliff jumping. Husband wanted to try it but then I reminded him of the rope swing incident at the river and the 9 staples he got in his head as a result. So instead we just watched. Son got really into it. He was cheering and screaming for the jumpers. And kept saying it was his turn next. ha. never Son.

The water is pretty shallow and really easy to walk it. It was pretty ideal for us.
