Violet Sky at Alabama’s Highest Point at Cheaha State Park

Nestled in the Talladega National Forest in northern Alabama stands Cheaha Mountain rising 2,407 feet above sea level. This spot is known for having the highest elevation in the entire state. This region is a part of the Appalachian Mountain chain which extends from Maine to Alabama.

As seen in the photo above, the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the bunker tower as a lookout point for visitors to take in the miles of scenery from this magnificent location.
