Smokey Mountains

There is a road between Tennessee and North Carolina called the Dragon which is basically an amusement park for sports cars and motorcycles.  I try to go at least once a year and sometimes I make it twice.  Imagine 318 curves in 11 miles with no driveways or intersections or stop signs.  It is just fun, twisty, driving!  The people pushing things on the Dragon are all vehicle enthusiasts and very friendly toward other enthusiasts.

Driving the Dragon is the whole reason I go to that part of the Smokies, but on one trip I decided to do some exploring….with the camera.  Now there is another reason for visiting the Dragon!  View the gallery by CLICKING HERE.
