Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary – 1

I visited Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary again recently. This time, I managed to find the northeast entrance; the one that is directly off Highway 431 in Hampton Cove in the eastern part of Huntsville. The entrance is just an unmarked gravel road and looks just like someone’s private driveway at first. Here are some photos.

Goldsmith-Schiffman Wildlife Sanctuary and the more-visited Hays Nature Preserve lie along the Flint River and GSWS especially serves as sort of a swampy delta area for the river.

About Phill Gibson

I'm from Huntsville, Alabama where I work as a Software Engineer and part-time banjo instructor. My wife Miiko and I worship at Rivertree Downtown. I've been playing various instruments since my teen years. I started mandolin and dulcimer at about age 17 and banjo at 20. I love just about all kinds of music. In terms of banjo styles, I play and teach Scruggs, melodic, clawhammer, and 2-finger styles. I'm also very keen on theology, being a Trail Care Partner with the Land Trust of North Alabama, photography, urban planning, architecture, astronomy, ATM (amateur telescope making), birding, martial arts, and about 30 other distracting hobbies to a (mercifully) lesser extent.
