Gulf State Park, Orange Beach, Alabama

Gulf State Park in Orange Beach, Alabama. Site 462 is less than 1/4 mile from the trailhead.



We rode for over 20 miles on the trails, here are a few pictures.





There are quite a few bridges along the trail.



She looks harmless enough.



This is a really nice place to ride and the campground is really nice. Big pool, tennis courts, Wi-Fi, and ice cream less than 1 mile away!

A shotgun would be better in Arizona: with a pistol with regular rounds, unless you nail that fellow in the head with your first shot, you're gonna be lookin' for anti-venom. Bird shot in your .22 pistol would work, too.

And with dynamite, would you have enough good leather left for your boots and purse? Big Grin

Hell, he looks like a baby compared to some of our huge Eastern Diamondbacks! This trail is 12' wide and that snake was approaching 7'!!! He has been around for a few years now, I saw him early in the year but only once. We'll see if he shows up again next year sunning his bad ass self on the trail!



He was a lot bigger than this little speed bump we came across in Pennsylvania this past summer.



I must admit though all three could kind of ruin your day if you got too close!
