Bald River Falls, Tennessee

Tellico Plains, TN

With the graceful Tellico River at our right, we rode to the beautiful Bald River Falls. The rocks were covered with moss, the air breathed refreshing mist, and the water cascaded over 100 feet below.

Directions: From I-75 take Highway 68 South to Tellico Plains. Turn East on Cherohala Skyway, right on Tellico River Rd.go appx. five miles, FS Rd. 210.

Bryson City, North Carolina

We stopped for lunch at Na-Bers Drive In along the river in Bryson City. Memorable!

Reeves Cove, Candler, NC

Just down the hill and around the corner, every one of our adventures begins on Reeves Cove. A beautiful, shaded, winding road adjacent to a creek, so near to our home. We've just passed our cell's "dead zone" and are headed to the straightaway-- and again, all the possibilities of the road.

Pink Beds Overlook, Elevation 4,822

We took an evening ride up the Parkway, past Mt. Pisgah and stopped at the Pink Beds Overlook where this butterfly posed patiently for its closeup photograph. Over and over again I am amazed at all the natural beauty that surround us so close to home, too beautiful to do justice with just a photograph.
