Our last stop on this trip was Montgomery, Alabama. We have been by here many times without much interest in stopping. Several blogs I follow have mentioned some of the interesting things to see in the area, so we decided to make a quick stop on our way home.
We stayed at the campground on Maxwell Air Force Base. There is an outdoor aircraft display located between some of the old style officer housing units and the center for international training. While not large, it has some interesting items and is a very nice area to walk around.
We did not have much time to spend exploring the area, so we headed downtown first thing Saturday morning just to get a quick idea of the city. We are still a bit concerned about finding a place to park the motorhome in cities, but decided to hope for the best. As it turned out this was a not a problem at all. We drove around downtown to get an idea of both the capital area and the business sections. We checked out the Capital building and surrounding structures along with the First White House of the Confederacy. We were able to park in front of the Capital and the White House and were practically the only vehicle around for part of the time.
We will have to come back when there is more time to explore the whole area. Right now, we are focused on our next trip that will begin soon to Alaska. This is very exciting for us, as we have had this adventure on the list for a long time.
