Foothills Parkway, early winter 2008. BURRR! The mountains attest to the brisk temps.
After riding my bike 75 miles in truly cold weather, I am exhausted.
I rode from my house to the Dragon and back, and the temp (windchill) was around 34 degrees. Burr.
Actually I rode 37.5 miles from home and turned around … thank goodness. On the return trip, as I crossed the Foothills Parkway, I looked east toward Gatlinburg and North Carolina … wow. Every mountain top was covered in snow. It was a beautiful sight, but the brisk temps made the trek a little “tougher.” I stopped on my return trip to snap the photo of the day. Enjoy.
