PIC OF THE WEEK - A ROCK IN THE ROAD

A ROCK IN THE ROAD
Ooops... there seems to be a rock in the road!

While cruisin' down the Little River Canyon Parkway (Hwy. 176) during our Alabama "stay-cay", we came across a rock in the road. Normally, rocks don't pose too much of a problem, but this one made you go around! The narrow curvy two lane highway that follows the rim of the canyon allows for several beautiful overlooks while at the same time letting you test your skills while you playfully maneuver it's twists and turns. However, there was a rock in the way when they built this highway so... they just went around it!

We logged over a thousand miles, was able to view seven states (Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina) at one time, and could officially say we rode the Glides in three of those named states. Not bad considering we were just a mere 180 miles or so from home. After riding around the northeast corner of our beautiful state, I can't wait to share more of our wonderful treasures.

I don't know how everyone's holiday was, but we spent our 4th of July on the road... the road to happiness!

Have a great Monday everybody!

B.B... We had a great time and I love that we have such pretty places right here in Alabama. Makes staying around here a lot more palatable.

Mq01... More to come, for sure. But aren't you getting ready for your own high mileage adventure? Can't wait to hear about yours as well.

Sure hope there was warning signs approaching that rock. Wouldn’t want to happen upon it at night.

Looks like a great trip--brings back my memories of visits up there!

Wonder how many people have hit that rock. "Gee officer I only had 2."

Willy D... No warnings, just the yellow paint on the road let's you know the highway just split in two. It would be one place to find out what it's like for those bugs on our windshield! splat!!

TS... See Rock City... with the Grandkids! They would love it!

Webster... didn't see much evidence on the rock that it's been the stopper for anyone, but I'm sure there are stories.
