Wandering Sunday

Mike and I took the bike out for a Sunday ride. Mike had some dirt roads he wanted to explore. At first, we didn't have any luck finding the roads that were on the map. But that's OK, we still enjoyed just exploring. This was a neat monument in Old Fort, NC.

This was down a dirt road that eventually ended into private property. This was a really, nice secluded road.

We eventually ended up on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We went to Mt. Mitchell State Park. It got a bit chilly up there. It had been probably 10 years since we'd last been there. They'd made many improvements. I was surprised at how many people had brought their dogs. Just to prove that we were there...

We left Mt. Mitchell and took a dirt road that was off the parkway. This road was actually fairly heavily traveled (as dirt roads go). There were many people camping along the road. This was a very scenic little road.

All in all, it was a nice day.
