I have just returned from a few days of visiting Alabama. I was hoping to see fall foliage, a rarity in my area. Indeed, there was some, albeit sporadic.
Our trip was to be based in Birmingham, Alabama, so we could make day trips from there. After visiting two parks on mountains we decided on our last day to go to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
The first surprise was there was no fee to enter. Other gardens I have visited have had a cost to enter.
