Rounding the curve around MM 249 we gasped at the impressive sight of White Cliffs and the old Alabama Greater Southern Railroad Bridge. We are truly blessed with the spectacular sights we see each day.

MM 217 brought us to the official end of the Tenn-Tom Waterway when the Black Warrior River, which originates near Birmingham, AL, joined in. We will now be traveling in what is known as the Black Warrior & Tombigbee.

Today was trailer day. We saw them hi and we saw them low and we saw then ready to take the position in between. I am sure this is a busy place during the summer months with boaters zipping around and guys fishing the river.
