It’s Still Fall

So according to the calendar, it is not winter for two days yet.  Which means it is still fall.  Which means, I should not be too embarrassed to get these last pics up of our trip in October.  So set aside your Christmas spirit and take in a bit more fall foliage!

This first tree is called the Tree of Shame.  It’s branches bloom out in pieces of motorcycles!  It is is quite interesting.  I thought it was amusing too until I heard that actually several people every year lose their life on the Tail of the Dragon.

Our ride home took in more beautiful scenery and the Blue Ridge smoky Mountains.  Becky, being a southern gal got particularly excited at some of the vistas.  But this Rocky Mountain gal, was right there with her.  It was pretty amazing!

Beautiful Hillsides…

And then the Blue Ridge again as we headed back to Kenny’s house.

Is it any wonder why they call it the Blue Ridge or the Smoky Mountains?

Im just glad we didn't find out about the deaths on the dragon until after we rode it! I might have been a little more tense if i had thought about possibly dying
