It’s not all grunt work and sweat when our Volunteer Wilderness Rangers are out on patrol. They also capture the beauty and essence of our public lands through visual images. Take a look at these photographs that one volunteer ranger came home with after a recent patrol in Cheaha Wilderness.
High Falls is located on the south end of Cheaha Wilderness. A short walk from the trailhead and you are greeted with a series of spectacular water falls.
Our volunteers never miss an opportunity to take a break and soak in their surroundings.
