One of the locals told me Loop Road was paved all the way at one time. Hard to believe that now.
You get some really nice pictures. Reading trip reports from far away places is fun, but it's also great seeing places you have already ridden. See those places from someone elses eyes.
That place has a pretty wild past. It's actually part of Monroe County so back in the day it was left un-patrolled by the law. Al Capone had a place there.
