Spent a long weekend up in the mountains near Asheville, NC

It was probably 30 degrees cooler up in those mountains than it was down in the low valleys.

I set up camp in Mills River, NC about 30 minutes south of Asheville in a campground tucked up in the folds of the mountains with a river running through it.

Here is my campsite, and the river that I cooled off in.

I took a ride up some back roads that were amazing working my way up the Blue Ridge Parkway. From there I went north to Mount Mitchell which is the highest mountain east of the Mississippi.

Then I came back south and hit a few overlooks and many tunnels working my way over to the Mount Pisgah area.

The last photo shows the temperature, elevation, and time the photo was taken. Pretty nice for the middle of August.

Then I met up with some other Moto Guzzi riders for a meet and greet at the Greenhouse Motor Cafe.

I really really miss Nc. Living back in Penna. isn't the same . Went to get the versys inspected the other day and had only put on about 1000 miles in a year. I use to do that in about a month living down south.Twowheels thanks for posting!

Sorry you got lost. I don't do rallies. Look at my avatar.
