We finally got out for a ride of about 125 miles today. It may have been cloudy and about 60 degrees (F) but it was well worth it. We even rode through a few very light rain showers. We headed up to Dawsonville, Georgia on Georgia HWY 53 and took a local road right before getting to the town square. That nice road was going to take us back out to GA HWY 183 but first we were going to go past a street named “Hillbilly Drive”! That’s right a real street in Dawsonville named Hillbilly DR. If you think I’m joking take a look at the map image below on the right and in the circled area. I meant to stop and take a picture of the sign but forgot to do that. From HWY 183 we took GA HWY 136 up and over Burnt Mountain and on into Talking Rock, GA. It’s always a few degrees cooler up on Burnt Mountain and today was no different with a temperature difference of about 8 degrees as we reached the top. We also noticed that there was quite a bit of last week’s snow still along the side of he road. There was no snow on the roadway, just along the side. However, in the road at times there was still a bit of the gravel that had been spread during the snow, but we were expecting that. It was getting foggier as we approached the top of the mountain. As we rode along we noticed the fog was actually forming on top of the snow! The temperature rose and the snow disappeared as we approached Talking Rock for lunch at Bigun’s BBQ before heading back home. A few more good rain showers should get rid of the gravel left on the mountain roads.
