A couple of weeks ago, I drove up to meet Mike K in Little Switzerland. He had a gravel road loop mapped out and I was looking forward to giving it a shot. I got there in time for breakfast. Rhonda, his wife cooked up some pancakes and eggs. I couldn't eat everything on my plate and felt bad for not doing so.
We dropped down 226 into the valley and after that I lost track of where I was. Basically, we rode up the valley, then up to the Blue Ridge, down the other side, , through that valley, then back up to the Parkway and home.
Close to 3 hrs on the road at a leisurely pace. Perfect day and great conversation.
Railroad tracks in the middle of seemingly nowhere!
We saw this interesting barn quilt. I have never seen one like this, usually they are symetrical designs. This one was really cool though!
Once again, Mike pulls off a great loop and we avoid anything epic!
