Well me and two buddies that I ride with went to the Great SMOKEYS last week. we camped in Bryson city outside of Cheorkee. Weather was excellent, mid 50's at night and upper 60's mid 70's during the day. We arrived on Tuesday riding in from South Ga. For the next three morning, Wednesday went West and rode the Cherohala for a 200 mile round trip that day. the next day we went East and rode up the Blue Ridge Parkway most of the day for a 180 mile round trip. Friday we went North thru the Smoky Mountain Park into Cades Cove....all was excellent, Weather, Scenry, Company. and conversation each morning and in the evening...Take the time and plan a trip..you will not regreat it. here are a few pics, I am the nice looking gentleman wearing the red bandana with the red Heritage..
