About this park:
Little River is unique because it flows for most of its length atop Lookout Mountain in northeast Alabama. Forested uplands, waterfalls, canyon rims and bluffs, pools, boulders, and sandstone cliffs offer settings for a variety of recreational activities.
Sometimes called the "Grand Canyon of the East," the spectacular canyon was carved over thousands of years by Little River. One of the longest rivers in America that flows almost entirely on the top of a mountain, Little River begins at 1,900 feet above sea level and drops over 1,200 feet before it finally merges with the waters of Weiss Lake.
Why did we choose these colors?
We used this photo, a shelf of sandstone that forms Little Falls, a popular swimming hole in the summer and a beautiful setting in the fall. https://www.nps.gov/media/photo/gallery-item.htm?pg=907598&id=d20a1aeb-a05b-46cc-9b00-a602e20efffc&gid=1315464F-E8FD-40C0-B84E-15E68AF147A0
