Lunch on the Citigo Creek deep in the forest north of the Cherahala Skyway.
Papa Wheelie offered me $300 if I’d jump in clothes and all.
Meh, $300 is $300.
Jealouser and jealouser with every picture. Do you have GPS tracks for those rides?
Very jealous. I stopped for a while at a little campsite/swimming hole on that creek last year. I considered jumping in, but it was about 85° so that would have been pleasant. I need to get back up there, even if it is a short trip. Keep having fun!
I can tell you first hand that even in August those pools off of the parkway are COLD!
I'm shivering just thinking about it.
Reminds me of when I hopped into the Flathead River in Montana. That water was so cold my brain actually locked up for a second. In July. So i did it 3 or 4 more times to get used to it. Nobody ever accused me of making good decisions.

Excellent way to get there from our area instead of enduring the interstate mess getting up there.
Runs you through Talladega Forest(the big dualsport friendly 600/500/540 forest service roads) and great secondary rural roads of Alabama and Georgia.
On Facebook, look up Smokey Mountain 500 page for recent updates of conditions and fsr closures.
That is all for now.
Papa Wheelie was testing me....
I passed that test.
