Little River Canyon Cruise
Calendar: Events Calendar
AF8LTA  
November 8th 09:30 AM to 10:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Meet at Lowes, North Parkway in Huntsville before 10:30a
Contact: vehicular

Here's the official plan:

We're leaving Geno's parking lot at or before 12:29 pm. We'll cruise to Ft. Payne to get gas and regroup, then we'll head up into the park.

Geno's opens at 11, so I'm planning to be there right at 11 to get lunch before we leave.

For the HSVillains, I'll be leaving the N. Parkway Lowe's parking lot at 10:30. You're welcome to come along. If other guys want to set up other meeting points, of course feel free to.

The way to get there:

The day could not have been more perfect for a cruise and a drive on some mountain roads. And apparently it was a great day for a lot of other enthusiasts as well. A Mercedes g500, a Hummer, and dune buggies were just some of the other vehicles we ran across besides the endless motorcycles.

In Scottsboro, more drivers joined us and we had equal representation of Mustangs, Neon SRT4s, BMWs, and Subarus, making for an almost 20 car mixed-crowd cruise to Fort Payne. Along the way, cameras peered out of cars as we took photos of each other. I got some good rolling shots, but not one of each car like I wanted. If anyone is interested in having these types of shots made of their car, feel free to get in touch with me.

The drive to Little River Canyon felt like the shortest part of the day with small stops along the way to fuel up our cars or ourselves. Gas stations were periodically overrun with our group of cars. Maneuvering our little train of cars through traffic lights without being broken up proved to be a bit of a challenge. We did lose some cars for a bit, but once we stopped at the large overlook, everyone caught up and we proceeded to drive.

Unfortunately, the road must be no secret as it was packed full of other cars and bikes enjoying the drive through the mountain roads. It wasn't like this on the weekday when vehicular drove it.

We regrouped at a turnaround spot and took a few group photos before proceeding to head back to the overlook where we first stopped. There was some discussion about a rock in the middle of the road so some drivers went to examine the feasibility. In the end, there was no feasibility. I waited for the results and enjoyed the humor of sti2k5. Entertaining as always. Maryna and I also stepped a bit off the beaten path to take some pictures of her.

People started heading back as the sun started to set. The drive back to Scottsboro was not too bad, but as the evening started to set in, the weariness of the day started to set in as well. A great and exahusting day.

Special thanks goes out to AF8LTA for taking some of these pictures and shooting some video on my other camera.

I believe I've driven this route before in the Corvette a few years back. It's a great little winding road that will be really pretty this time of year.

I was just sharing my experience with what I think is the same road. It's been quite a few years.

My nice cars are out. I have cords showing all the way around after the last cruise. And I can't get new tires in time at a decent price. I can probably ride along if someone wants to offer. I can bring cameras.

Will do. I'll bring both Sonys. They can shoot video and pics at the turn of a button.

This is Sunday so your plans Saturday night should not matter.
