Hear Only the Sounds of Nature At Alum Bluff

    By Tim Wheeler

    Florida may not have mountain ranges like Colorado or canyons like Arizona, but that doesn't mean it's without geologic formations. Paddle the Apalachicola River past Alum Bluff, and you'll be able to look back in time. Eons of erosion have cut a channel that exposes 18 million years of history. You'll find fossils, if that interests you — or just enjoy a paddle on one of Florida's best river's for it. There aren't many places you can go where the sounds of manmade hustle and bustle completely fade away. This is one.
