Yup... you read right.  You are welcome to join me.  Closer to this event I will expect an RSVP so I know whether or not to wait.

I will be leaving Goosepond at 5:30am and riding to Weathington Park.  This park has an AMAZING view of the lake and sunrise.  I remember my Mom dragging us out of bed to view about 45 years ago :-)

Count me in.... glutton for punishment. Remember, the catfish fry the night before!!! 

Looking at your map, can you pick up some of us at the Red Roof Inn in Scottsboro, seeing as you're going to pass right by the front door? About 6 miles after you start, which saves us a 12 mile roundtrip. Oh Please!!!!

And of course I just had to look up the pertinent times from the US Naval Observatory site.

This is sunrise from the State Park taken this weekend... this triggered the memory about the park and my Mom.

Doesn't really matter, looking at Street View there's no gate or anything to stop us from riding straight on in.  Remember, fences and gates are to keep the sheep in, not the bikes out! LOL

I am not an early riser when I am on vacation.  But I will consider it. ☀️

It's just not a vacation it's a fricking adventure.
