Lining up for the Thursday Night
Sunset Run on the Cherohala Skyway


Taking a break just before sunset
at the Hoopers Bald Trailhead parking area


The largest turnout ever for the Sunset Run
saw a spectacular sunset at Santeetlah

TVA's Fontana Dam rises 480 feet above
the valley to create Fontana Lake


The Appalachian Trail crosses the
Little Tennessee River at Fontana Dam


Another happy driver Zoom-Zooming
across the Ted Jordan Bridge on US 129

Killboy's fun machine was on display at
the Tail Of The Dragon Outlet at Deals Gap

Gathering across the street from the
Phillips Motel for the Fat Buddies run


A great turnout at Fat Buddies BBQ after the
drive down Wayah Road


Showed up just a little bit early
for the Dam(n) Photo on Saturday


Eventually the crowd began to roll in
and get lined up for the photo

An estimated 170 or more cars showed up
to be photographed below Fontana Dam

After the picture, several cars regrouped at
Fontana Village for a little show and shine

This could very well be the first prototype for
a V-8 powered third generation Miata

The Saturday Night Beer Swap and
Wine Tasting drew it's largest crowd yet

The view from below the Stratton Meadow
Bridge on the Cherohala Skyway

Yeah I think I'll be heading the other
direction now, thank you


Made a stop in Knoxville to grab a few beers
from southern breweries I can't get in Ohio


Here are some of my favorite nature photos.

Lake Santeetlah as seen from the
Ted Jordan Bridge on US 129

Morning fog lifting above a portion of
Lake Santeetlah near Robbinsville

Bald River Falls lies just a short distance
off the Cherohala Skyway


The Nantahala National Forest is thick
in the valley below the Cherohala Skyway
