    Against my better judgment I decided to ride a loop through Helen....but thankfully the tourists hadn't shown up yet on this Friday afternoon. :thumb

    I was the only one in this field Friday but would have plenty of company Sat night. Actually there was a couple of other groups there Friday too, they just were camped in the next area over. A group of sportbikes that trailered up from Savanah and a group of guys from Knoxville on a couple GS's a DRZ and an old K-bike, they were good peeps and I hung out around the fire with them both nights. :kumbaya

    Oh yeah...new bridges and a BIG new bath house (no pic of it)

    Of course a trip to the falls includes a couple of opportunities to rinse off your tires. :evil

    The lunch crowd was a bit bigger than the breakfast crowd, and may have been bigger than this earlier as I didn't get back until about 2.
