To the Rescue

This is what you will see if you look across the highway while you are walking on the track, unless it is during one of the thousands of times each year that the Fire Department is out on a call. The Pell City Fire and Rescue Department is well trained and award winning (more on that later). So, if you are compelled to have a heart attack or deliver a baby while jogging, there are worse places you could do it.

They sure keep their Fire Engine Clean. I think I can see my reflection in two places.

Walk on the Mild Side

This is a popular walking track which is conveniently located on one of the main roads through town, US Hwy 78. It is safe because of its openness and because it is well lit. You may get to see a night shot of this track in the future. The usual patronage seems to be young and middle aged adults. Sometimes there is a single jogger, and sometimes it looks like a tiny parade. The trees on the left make a great place to stop the car for a short break or made a little lunch.

Here's my confession to Le Curé D'Ars (July 29): I pass this track everyday, but I have yet to put a foot on it.

Westerly Winds

This is the top of a building near the library. Sure it is fairly common, but it helps give the area a quaint appearance. It would be fun to get up to that small deck inside the railing, especially on a night when the stars are bright. This is a business, though, so they may not be equipped for fun.

One of the first things I did when I moved here was to get a library card and check out a DNA book: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Seat of Government

Pell City is the County Seat for St. Clair County, AL. Actually, St. Clair has two County Seats: Pell City and Ashville. This photo was taken after closing time (see the clock?), so there are not many vehicles around. This nice building is obviously not very old, but the best part is inside. The folks inside are friendly and helpful.

Just Passing Through

This is all that most people see of Pell City, AL. Pell City is on the busy Intersate Highway 20 in the Northeast quadrant of Alabama. One day, drivers will be able to speed by much faster than they do now. When the road construction is finished, the speed limit will be raised from 55 to 70 MPH. Too bad, though. Pell City is a nice place to visit and a nice place to live.
