Meeting up with a group from Cincinnati
for the ride down I-75.


Atop the Cherohala Skyway for
The Thursday Night Sunset Run.


Another beautiful sunset at Santeetlah.


This is just one of the reasons why
I love the Cherohala Skyway.


What a great view of the Smoky Mountains from the Foothills Parkway.


Lining up in Robbinsville for the run down Wayah Road to Fat Buddies BBQ.

Regrouping at the Nantahala River Launch Site at the beginning of Wayah Road.

Someone at TVA forgot to open the gate
to the Fontana Dam...


...so we took the group photograph on the softball field at Fontana Village.


Attendees and vendors relaxing and showing off in the parking lot at Fontana Village.


The Saturday Night Beer Swap was
once again a popular and fun event.

Icee-James (James Pou, on left) was my
de-facto barback at the Beer Swap.

MMMM BEER. We sampled several great beers at the Beer Swap.

My car is in North Carolina
but I'm in Tennessee!

Monday mornings are always slow
on The Tail Of The Dragon.

Miatas and mountains go together like
hot fudge and ice cream.

Some serious switchback action on a remote gravel road in Eastern Tennessee...


...which I added to my trip home
at the very last minute.


Here are some of my favorite photos of the
natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains

The Cherohala Skyway has some of the best views in the entire Appalachian Mountains.

Rainbow Falls along NC28 between
Fontana Village and Sweetwater Road.

Dramatic sunset through the clouds
atop the Cherohala Skyway.


Watching the fog lift from the Dragon Overlook. (A great place to enjoy your morning coffee.)
