Very true. A lot of people think it's all farmland, haha. There are some pretty flat places, but about 1/3 of the state is at least very hilly. In some cases, the vertical relief of the mountains rivals states further north and east.
Birmingham is definitely one of those cities that has a lot to offer in the mountain (hill if you're from somewhere like Colorado) department. It's nice to see regional leadership taking action to preserve places like the one I took the above picture in.
If any of you haven't seen pictures of some waterfalls in Alabama, you might wanna do a Flickr search for Desoto Falls, Noccalulu Falls, or Little River Falls. They aren't grand by any means, but they're definitely a sight to see.
