Tues 1/28 @ 11:03AM – Smyer Rd. As I descend Smyer Rd, I decide I want to get a picture of the road covered in snow. This is one of the most beautiful roads in Birmingham – with a few switchbacks, heavily forested, lined by a very old retaining wall. In 2004, a landslide caused by Hurricane Ivan wiped out a section of road about 3/4 of the way up. This section is just past the landslide area and is a bit more picturesque.
