Evergreen, Alabama Photographs

Evergreen, Alabama is my childhood home. To quote  Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sweet Home Alabama! I make yearly trips back to south Alabama. And, when I am there, I try to take a few photos.

Bull Slough Bridge

Not far from Evergreen, Alabama, is the Sepulga River. Crossing the Sepulga near the community of Brooklyn is the stately Bull Slough Bridge. The bridge, built in 1924, is a 232-foot long single-truss bridge.

Sepulga River

In the last few years, the idea of canoeing or kyaking down the Sepulga River has become very popular. In fact, the route down the Sepulga is called the Sepulga River Canoe Trail. To learn more about the trail, go to their Website. Here are two photos of the Sepulga: one shows the water high and the other shows the water very low.
