What a day! Today was awesome from sun up to sun down. Started NW of Chattanooga with a threat of rain all day long, and not a drop until we pulled into the hotel in Asheville.
We started the day with a traditional Tennessee breakfast, at least that’s what the menu said at the smokehouse, ok diets next week. We headed out of Monteagle around 8:30 on to Chattanooga, yes the Choo-Choo place. Wondered around downtown for a while, very nice, and then decided the mountains were calling us, not to mention the clouds looked ominous (I am told that is a fancy word for yikes).
So off to U.S. 64 and some of the most incredible views we have seen. Nothing like hugging the side of a cliff next to a roaring river, a river by the way that Olympians have forged. It is incredible to us that God could create such wonder and then inspire men to create a way for all of us to enjoy His creation. If you have ever considered buying a bike this place is for you.
- 1,000 calorie breakfast (just joking)
- Historic Chattanooga
- Six hours of amazing mountain riding
- A great lunch in Highlands, NC
- And an amazing night in Asheville
Imagine all this and we are just getting started……. See you tomorrow from Grandfathers Mountain and the Biltmore.
