Wallpaper Description:


Dismals Canyon is a sandstone gorge near Phil Campbell in Franklin County, Alabama. It was declared a National Natural Landmark in May 1974.
Dismals Canyon is one of only a few places where insects called dismalites (Orfelia fultoni, a distant relative of Arachnocampa) can be found. The larval forms of these flies emit a bright blue-green light to attract food and mates. They cover the canyon wall.
The canyon is home to two waterfalls, Secret Falls (Pictured Above) and Rainbow Falls, and six natural bridges.
Dismals Canyon is operated commercially as part of an 85-acre (340,000 m2) nature preserve, and a fee is charged for entry. Night tours are conducted to view the dismalites. Camping is available in both traditional campsites and in cabins.

Dismal Canyon doesn't look very dismal at all! On a more curious note, I wonder if the larva are sometimes called glowworms? f +1 :)
