Alabama is fond of getting into Hell it seems. Not only is there a Hell’s Gates bridge, but there’s also this place in Huntsville, which is also called Hell’s Gates, which in reality, appears to be nothing more than a set of gates blocking a private driveway to some rich guy’s mansion. This poor sot is apparently bedeviled by the locals, who like to drive up to his gates and wait and see if anything spooky happens. They swear if they sit there long enough, a car will appear to chase them down the mountain and then suddenly disappear. Could it possibly be the irate homeowner with a loaded shotgun?
