It was a beautiful day here in North Carolina! We rode the Harley up Pisgah Mountain and over to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We took some subs from Subway and had a picnic at the top of the mountain on a grassy knoll. There were sooooo many people there. I know who would have thought, right? People coming from all over the nation to see the trees changing colors....but almost none of them got to see what we saw. We went up Highway 151 which is a curvy mountain road that leads right on to the Parkway but the views are spectacular. On the Parkway you can see clear views of the mountains for miles and miles, but on this highway you can almost touch the leaves as you ride by. They even form a canopy over your head, like you are riding in a tunnel. We were lucky enough to have such a beautiful day fall on a Sunday when we were off from work and could go. That doesn't always happen....sometimes it rains off all the leaves and blows off all the leaves before we have a free day. Here are a few pictures, I have more that I haven't downloaded yet, I'll get them tomorrow. These were shot with my LG Ally Android and they are pretty dumb good. Hopefully the ones taken with my Casio digital will be even better!
And the handsome man in the pictures is my darling husband, Tony. You can see my helmet on the back of the bike with the roses on it. We had fun and I hope we get to go again before winter. As always, Asheville is a fun place to be!
