after the great day in North-Carolina our next stop was north alabama. To go there we had to drive about 540 Miles. With the slow 70mph maximum speed in US we planed a whole day for that. There is not much to say about that day. We arrived in north alabama in the early evening.
We had a great guide for that area, who showed us some of the last remaining Sarracenia oreophila populations. The first one was in a small clearing, but a bit shaded.
The second spot we saw that day was an open area. The plants looked much nicer there!

Close by is a small forest. There are alos plants growing there, but the vegetation is so dense, that they barely get light.
We had some more time this day, so we decided to do some sightseeing in the close by Little River Canyon. Here are some random images of this nice place:
Some vultures circled patiently above us the whole day.
