    the way home was even colder, the top of the skyway looked like they had an icestorm: ice covered trees :eek1, at least the road was dry - but it was to cold to stop and pull out the camera :lol3.

    Can't believe I haven't checked out this thread yet.
    I love the roads up here. I've been on a lot of the ones in this thread while exploring.

    Amazing that Big Laurel and Grapevine are essentially my grocery store route on the bike.:clap
