Follow the crazy adventures of an Alabama cyclist taking on the Race Across America (again) in 2017.
Tues, 1/28 @ 1:54PM – walking south on US Hwy 31
Tues, 1/28 @ 1:54PM – walking south on US Hwy 31. – when I see that Hwy 31 is closed and after my experience with a deserted Hwy 280, I decide that the best way home for me is to simply take Hwy 31 south. I’m cold so I don’t stop to take many pictures on the way down, but when I stop to take this pic of all the abandoned cars I ask the lady half in the picture how far she has been walking. She tells me that she left Mountain Brook a while ago, made her way to Lakeshore, and then up Hwy 31 all the way to this spot just past the Ruby Tuesday’s. The cars climbing the hill on Hwy 31 north are all abandoned. 1:54PM, 3 hours after it first started to snow.
