Chimney Peak in Alabama

January 18, 2009; Chimney Peak in Alabama

Continuing my drive around the Alabama country side today, I stopped at Chimney Peak to eat a cheeseburger on top of Calhoun County’s 12th highest point at 1,716 feet. Chimney Peak can be reached from Mountain Street in Jacksonville, Alabama, which becomes Chimney Peak Tower Road. There are two pull-offs available near the summit which gives visitors a good view of the valley below. A retired fire tower still stands atop the summit alongside the all too common communications towers. I tried a different brand of cheeseburger here, but I have to figure out some other way. A cold fast food cheeseburger isn’t the tastiest of cheeseburgers. I think the cheeseburger itself, plus the logistics need to be better. I shall endeavor to strive for improvement.
