A Sunny Sunday Ride (Mostly Photos)

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

After a few days of rain Sunday brought crystal clear skies which made for some amazing views climbing up the Blue Ridge Parkway toward Mt. Mitchell.  Unfortunately I didn’t plan on going to the top so had to turn around part way because it started to get pretty cold.  50’s at the bottom, probably 30’s at the top.  Photos can never do any place justice but these aren’t half bad.  Next time I’ll try and get some good videos.  Enjoy.

 

Not a bad view to enjoy a cup of joe and some morning reading.

Rode that I thought was paved but turned out to be a sick dirt climb that dumped out mid-way up another sick climb.

Also cut from a video.  I’ll see what I can do in making some cool Go Pro clips.
