We urge our Birmingham and Huntsville members to travel this day.

The beautiful drives to Natural Bridge from M-B Birmingham (Irondale) and   M-B Huntsville take almost exactly the same time.  We will meet at both dealerships at 9am to leave by 9:30. We should meet at Natural Bridge about 11 am where we will enjoy the striking geology and plants followed by our picnic lunches that we have brought along.  We will then proceed the 35 miles to Dismals Canyon for an even greater adventure.  

Dismals Canyon is one of only a three places where insects called dismalites can be found. The larval forms of these flies emit a bright blue-green light to attract food and mates. They cover the canyon wall.  July 31 is the last Evening tour of the Dismalites until September. The evening tour is at 8:30 PM   Please view the below web page....

 Pack a lunch, a chair and a comfortable pair of walking shoes. Note there is an entrance fee for both properties.  $3.50 N.B.,  $12.00 D.C.  Discount if 60 or older.
