Boy did we have some rain overnight in Little Switzerland! The Asheville TV station was talking about it. We spent 2 days taking it easy in Little Switzerland where rode the Diamondback, sat on the porch watching the parkway go by and going across the grounds to look at the mountains. The Big Lynn Lodge was a great place to stay and we want to go back.
Last night’s rain became this morning’s thick fog for our departure. After a bit of time in the fog, rain was added. Finally, we got to blue skies by the time we got to Mt. Pisgah.
Now that we’re further south in North Carolina the leaf changes are more noticeable and it’s not as green as it was in Virginia. The higher altitudes along with lower overnight temperatures are the reason for that. North Carolina also has a lot more tunnels.
We stopped at the highest point on the parkway for some photographs and to speak with some other motorcyclists. From the high point it was on to Maggie Valley for the night. Tomorrow morning we’ll finish up the Blue Ridge Parkway at its end point in Cherokee, NC and head for home.
