Last weekend, Cary and I continued our quest to see some of the sights in North Alabama. We started by having lunch at the All-Steak in Cullman. I had never been and it was delicious. I had the chicken pot pie, lima beans and squash casserole. I will say that the famous orange rolls where a bit greasy for my taste.
Since it was still really, really hot, we decided to explore another cavern. This time we headed to Rickwood Caverns in Warrior, AL. It was a complete disappointment! The majority of the cave looked like a mine shaft as they had just concreted the walls to create paths after blasting.
The next three pictures are of the living part of the cave. We probably only walked 50 yards out of the mile long cave through this area.
The remainder of the cave looked like the following pictures.
After the cave experience, we decided to look for the famous covered bridges of Blount County. Well, the first one was burned down although the sign was still up. This was the second one, which is smaller than the covered bridge on Green Mountain. The third one we did not find since we had left the directions at home. It is apparently the longest and most picturesque. Maybe one day on the way to Birmingham, we will be able to find it.
Although the sights that we visited were less than impressive, it was still a nice day!
This weekend is the start of the People to People season so my weekend explorations will stop for a few weeks.
