|Downtown Union Springs - 4Runner and Bird Dog Statue|
|These folks love bird dogs alright!|
Arriving in Alabama at the historic town of Eufala, I crossed the super-sized Lake Eufala and before continuing on the way into Bullock County traveling along Highway 82, I stopped to pay homage to the bird dog statue in downtown Union Springs. No one paid me any attention as I parked my 4Runner and stepped out into the street to make a photo - just another tourist in town! Part of the TRD Pro package is the Aluminum front skid plate underneath the front grill that spells out the name Toyota. The absence of the T-insignia found on all other Toyota models, gives this 4Runner more of the feel that one yearns for from older model Toyota jeeps and cruisers.

We did have a rainstorm while I was in Alabama, and this SUV rolled across the two-rut red clay roads like it was nothing. Boy does that red clay spray show up nicely on the side of a white truck too! Having been on an off road driving course before with a Tundra, I definitely got the feeling that this TRD Pro edition 4Runner would be able to handle any average off-roading challenge I might encounter in the Southeast.
