March 23: Birmingham curiosities

Sunday morning, we decided we'd spend some time seeing some of the local Birmingham curiosities.

First up was Kelly Ingram park, just outside the 16th Street Baptist Church and the center of some of the 1960s civil rights demonstrations.

"I ain't afraid of your jail"












In a somewhat lighter vein, we headed downtown to Five Points to see one of the famous pagan statues, the Five Points Storyteller fountain, where a friendly seated goat reads to an assorted audience.





Next, the Vulcan statue at Vulcan Park overlooking downtown:





Finally, we headed for the replica Statue of Liberty:



From here, in the interest of making time, we made the mostly boring eastward slog on I-20 towards Atlanta, although we did make some time for one last bit of dual-sportin' behind an east Georgia truckstop with a major hill-climb, haha... we enjoyed a nice little picnic atop this rise before making our way home.
