Summer Break: Shigley’s Swimming Hole in Alabama

Folks, this post has nothing to do with law.  Appreciating the simple joys of a Southern summer, I just want to share a video someone posted of the “Shigley Hole,” an old swimming hole on land my great-grandparents homesteaded in the late 1800s near Little River Canyon in northeast Alabama.

I can just imagine my late grandfather and his siblings jumping off those rocks and plunging into that pool as children well over a century ago.

Enjoy some down time with you family this summer. If you want to find the trail to the “Shigley Hole” see
