Headed down 276 again and went W on FS roads. The Looking Glass Rock is one big ol hunka rock. The perspective you get off the parkway isn't the same and I was still quite a ways off.
Eventually came out on 215 above where I've stayed in the past at Lazy J, check Jimmy out they're good people. Headed down to Rosman with threatening skies, should have headed N back to the parkway. Torrential isolated summer storm complete with thunder, lightning and hail came up so quick didn't have a chance to booty & frog togg up, Found a shelter near the pool in town and waited it out for a good hour or so.
When I made it back to camp it was time for some gourmet tuna casserole
Slept like baby that night except for the occasional coyote call or bear looking for a pic a nic basket
