We have a lot of unusual named cities/communities in Alabama.
Beehive, Rainbow, Cuba, Five Fork, Lick Skillet, etc.
Here is a link to 30 of them: http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/alabama/30-alabama-bizarre-town-names/
Now, due to this thread, I've started a new personal Google Map to pin them, then see if I can ride and take photos of them.
So far, of the first ten I've pinned, only 8 of them have something there to photo with the name to prove/document when I'm there.
You know: No photo, it didn't happen.
Maybe a road sign with GPS coordinates.

Edit: even though it wasn't stated by the OP, I'm assuming the challenge was to go and photo document the place existence with your bike?

I've never been here, sounds boring, but maybe someone here has and can post a picture.
