It is absolutely beautiful!! Love it!! I've never seen such a wonderful road free of truck traffic full of scenic beauty and that just goes on forever...What a great execution of a world class motorcycle road!! I'm in Roanoke right now heading to Asherville Thursday night (hope to make it all the way there) and back northbound on Friday this week. See you on the road (or trail:) I'm already thinking of my next trip where I can stay longer in one place. This time, I want to see it all if I can.
You should have seen it, Skyline Drive, before all the blighted trees :(. It is nowhere near the majesty it was even a few years ago. We went camping this year and the trees are really fighting for their lives against invading insects from Asia, as well as I believe fungus. It almost made me cry. My wife had never been camping there, and I used to go quite often when I was younger. Heck they even have some of the loops in the Loft Mountain campground closed due to it.
