I just got back from a ride down Highway 60 between Morganton, GA and Dahlonega, GA; 40 miles of motorcycle heaven - not that we were on a motorcycle but my teenage driver wanted to experience country road switchback driving and since I'm visiting in the area this week this was her chance. You go up and over 3 different mountains along that route so switchbacks are plentiful. As it happened we saw many, many motorcycles and even more bikers - the manual kind. We also passed a handful of hikers. The weather was great! It was just beautiful. We don't choose to come back a different route for safety reasons. It was getting crowded; the roads are narrow and your line of sight is limited. We'd accomplished our goal so we let the bikers have the road but it was beautiful. I went to school in the area so it brought back memories.
Summer is quickly coming to a close - lots to do in the remaining two weeks, not the least is finishing up my coal storage area and getting my coal in for the winter. That's this week. Then the quick trip my husband and I are taking to Las Vegas and then school's back in and I'm on the bus again. I'm amazed at how fast the summer went by.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend - we are expecting heavy Thunderstorms again this afternoon. That's the normal weather pattern for the North GA mountains. They say if you don't like the weather here, wait ten minutes and it will change.
Have a great day!
