Plan for Rain
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring your umbrella and whatever gear keeps you comfortable in the rain. I was lucky to check out the Weather Channel before my trip, so I saw that heavy rain was expected during my stay and packed accordingly. But my friend who lives in Birmingham said it's very common for them to have periodic rain showers throughout the day. I was very glad to have my jeans and rain flips (my affectionate nickname for my green plastic flip-flops).
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: You'll want tennies for hiking Oak Mt. State Park. The trail to the aviary isn't that strenuous, but it is dirty and can be very slippery when it rains.
