The Black Warrior River

One of the best features in Tuscaloosa is all the WATER.
Tuscaloosa county encompasses over 1300 square miles making it one of the largest counties in Alabama. Twenty seven square miles are covered in water. Tuscaloosa was originally spelled Tuskaloosa and the city and county were named for a Choctaw chief. Tuskaloosa means Black Warrior. This is the Black Warrior River at Holt Lake/Holt Dam & Reservoir. It is a great place to fish, boat and waterski. This was the view late yesterday afternoon.

Nice view of the river! We used to take a boat to Lock 5 (way on downriver) when I was a kid.
