Harrah's Cherokee Casino

Steven has the poker bug, so we headed out this morning to Harrah's Cherokee Casino. We had a beautiful blue sky full of white billowy clouds and the 50-mile ride there through Soco Gap and US Hwy 19 is so delightful.

Rooms at the casino were sold out, so we stayed at the Days Inn right across the street.

Beautifully landscaped casino.

Craggy Pinnacle

Freezing cold on the Parkway North this morning. Still the view looking from the Craggy Pinnacle Overlook was spectacular.

Paint Fork Road

Ge and Dana behind us
Beautiful Saturday morning, riding with friends through Weaverville, just north of Asheville, on one of my favorites, Paint Fork Road.

Just a stunning ride through green terrain, curves, creeks, and stunning rural scenery.

So much to see and breathe in. Great ride, great friends.

And as we were totally immersed with our ride, our Harley just stopped. Dead. A rather dull thud at the climax of our concerto.

Ge's family helped us get started again. Our voltage regulator needed to be changed. We ended up replacing the battery and that got us home.
