That sign depicted Deals Gap to be on the left end of that distant ridge....just to the right of the tree in foreground.

Atop Newfound Gap in the GSMNP looking back down on the road up.















across the other side of the gap...















Traffic was heavy all the way down to sugarlands from the gap....but at least it kept moving...

I don't ride through here very often because of the traffic but it is pretty enough to suck it up every once in a while.

All the killboys must have packed up and headed for home by 5pm.....we rolled through the tail of the dragon about 5:30


So...I had to do what I could to get Jock's action sequence.

We rode down to the Iron Horse resort and got our tents set up before dark then off to the diner for some grub, where we had a chance meeting with red bud's dad!

No pics though.....until Thursday morning. Jock was headed down to Alabama and I had an early afternoon appt. in Charlotte.

Last wave goodbye.




I am honored that Jock came to visit me on his 2 month random tour of the USA! It was my pleasure to ride with the man, who btw is a class act gentleman!












It was cool and foggy down in the valley.....was kinda in a hurry and though to take the 4 lane through Asheville and all the way to home.

But....it looked like the sun was trying to burn through so I took a chance and hopped on the BRP from 74 and headed for sunnier skies.















Not only was it sunnier....it was warmer as well and virtually no traffic!

I'd agree that some of these are yet again repeats....except some of these have the moon in them too...so there!
