After unseasonably cold weather more suitable for Maine than Alabama as well as several snow storms, we finally got a break in the weather. It seemed like we went from Winter to spring overnight with highs in the 60s. Today I finally had some free time so......of course I went for a ride

I had only a rough plan. I thought I'd cut across Redstone Arsenal, stop by Cycle Gear to see if they had any deals I just couldn't live without, and then ride around some before heading home. It turned out that I got sidetracked checking out Redstone Arsenal and didn't end up going anywhere else. I was trying to find an interesting route across the base but the only map I had was a Rand Mcnally. From my experience Rand Mcnally maps are notoriously innacurate. I only bought it because I needed a Huntsville map and thats all I could find. So I ended up going down several roads that didn't go through. I also found this interesting site:



Redstone has a long history of Rockets and space flight. It was the home of Werner Von Braun and other German rocket scientists after WWII.

Just to the left of the rocket I found this:
