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.
