Camping at Sand Rock

We had a quick overnight camping trip to Sand Rock, near Leesburg, AL.  This is my second time to camp in this spot and it is my favorite in the state!

Plenty of shade, a nice breeze (kept the flying bugs away) and cool overnight temps made hammock camping comfortable.

We had a great ride up HWY 411 through small towns in Northeast Alabama.  Stopped in Gadsden for lunch and had NY strip cooked over a fire for dinner.

Loaf made an appearance from Monkeytown.  His bike was down so he caged it but it was good to spend some time with the one they call Loaf.

Good times with good friends.  I'm already looking forward to our next trip!

My bike with my "traveling" sissy bar.

Best campsite and view in our area!

Whitey found a painting of his junk (he says it's drawn to scale)!

Ross was the latest to catch the hammock craze.  I'm getting better with my rig.  It takes a few nights to get the hang of it.

This is a view from the top of our campsite.  Plenty of room to throw down if we get some numbers!

Saturday afternoon nap...

Weiss Lake in the background.  Best panoramic view of any spot I've been to!

I hope we can get out a few more times during the riding season!
