Casper, you're right about the Sipsey. I plead confusion... there's a
Wilderness Area there as part of a National Forest, up in some really broken
hill country. Winston County is the part of Alabama that seceded from
Alabama at the beginning of the Civil War, for all the Civil War buffs on
the list. And the streams there are beautiful!
