Hwy 215, North Carolina

Great day of riding back through country road treasures of Dupont Forest to Caesars Head back via Rosman, and up HWY 215. Of course, The Parkway is closed for winter, but that means the highway was almost empty, so the ride was spectacular.

On the other side, going North on 215 (Lake Logan Road) to Canton, we were shaded and there was ice on the road. Not my favorite. But the recent rain made the Pigeon River swell and the waterfalls along the side of the road were magnificent. There is so much comfort in the feel of the rocking Harley, the clean air, speed, passing scenery, music in my ears, and Steven pressed against my chest.

Me & Steven in Greenville, SC

"To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven." ~ Karen Sunde

Falls Park on the Reedy River

Downtown Greenville is beautiful. Falls Park on the Reedy River features the acclaimed $4.5 million Liberty Bridge, a new 355 ft pedestrian walkway overlooking the historic waterfall is the only curved, cantilevered pedestrian suspension bridge in the United States.

Caesars Head, SC

Caesars Head
We road from Brevard to Greenville, going south for the sunshine. We road through Dupont Forest, past Hooker Falls and took US 276 to Caesars Head State Park feet above sea level; Caesars Head provides a panoramic view of the mountain country. It is really breathtaking there, looking down at the valley at Table Rock Mountain.

Lake Lure

It was chilly and windy here, in the low 50s, but the sky was blue and clear so we had a nice ride to Lake Lure to Highway 18 and Rutherfordton. Here's Steven and Dana enjoying the river next to the Tiki Bar near Chimney Rock.
