After a long drive today, we've arrived in Cloudland Canyon State Park. We didn't find any good exposures around Birmingham, Alabama, our rock stop target for today, so we drove on. Fortunately the beginning of Memorial Day weekend didn't bring too much traffic with it, and we're hoping that trend continues for our final push home tomorrow. We'll likely skip our regular stops along the interstate if there is heavy traffic, but we've got a few things to see on side roads too. For now, we've hiked into our campsites and are enjoying one last campfire.
After we finished off the crawfish last night we were serenaded by a cacophony of bayou fauna (listen). Most of us spent the night in tents for the first time too to avoid the bugs, and fortunately we didn't get anymore rain, just some nice lightning shows.
