Dodging the Roadkill: Rattlesnake Saloon

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyTuscumbia, AL – My local H.O.G chapter organized a group ride to the Rattlesnake Saloon in Tuscumbia, Alabama.  I had never heard of the place, but was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. 

Our ride began in Clarksville, TN and started down Highway 48/13, where we veered down Highway 13 towards Erin, TN, and Waverly, TN.  Highway 13 is a beautiful ride through some beautiful Tennessee countryside.  

Once we cleared through Waverly, we passed the Loretta Lynn Ranch and made our way to Waynesboro, TN.  From there we hopped on the Natchez Trace Parkway, which is always a delightful ride.
