This mural was the last one I found that afternoon in Dothan, Alabama. All the murals in this town lie in the downtown area and are within walking distance to each other. One can go from building to building, block to block and keep finding more murals every time you turn around. I tried to research as to how many murals there are and came up with 16 or 17 "Wiregrass Murals" described on the town's websites, which by the way it appears I missed two. Yet I've shown other murals I found in town so I guess they are unofficial ones and the exact number is unknown, at least to me.
This one here though was the most massive at 222 feet long. Here it is looking from left to right. If I can remember correctly I could not get back far enough to get it in it's entirety as the building across the way was too close. You can see the shadow of that building and a railing in the second photo. For the third photo I was able to get back behind that building down into the vacant lot for the picture. Nevertheless, can you believe my good fortune in having only two cars in the way and that they were at the far end?
By now it was a couple of hours into my tea time and I was parched. It had already been a long day's drive as it was since we were trying to outrun some severe weather rolling in mid-state. We ended up at an Indian Casino parking lot south of town for the night tired, but glad we dodged the worst of the storms. Even still, Sinbad did not like the thunder at all. How do you explain to a cat thunder won't hurt you?
