Had to take it slow until I got east of Boone and then it started clearing up.
Old NC 18 (on the way up) never fails to entertain.

I rode on lots of wet pavement but didn't get caught in any showers. But I took a good look at the radar in motion before setting out and didn't have a set route to follow....just tried to avoid the rain clouds.
Didn't ride old 18 this time out but did hit some new to me gravel on the way up and Golden Valley on the way back.
