Summer Morning Hike on Smythe Trail at Red Mountain Park, Birmingham

Mushrooms decorating the Smythe Trail at Red Mountain Park, Birmingham, Alabama
Along the Smythe Trail at Red Mountain Park, wildflowers dot the otherwise brown-and-green canvas like so many flecks of brightly-colored paint. The forest floor is decorated with mushrooms of every sort, reminiscent of Easter eggs and loaves of bread. Amidst this and the chirping birds are occasional cables and rusted metal that serve as reminders of the industrial past that adorns Red Mountain, and is a significant staple of the unique nature of this park.
