Red Bud, it was an incredibly nice day to be on a bike looking at the beautiful Tennessee countryside.

Thanks Tom. I've spent a good bit of time in New Hampshire (Nashua area) but also did some skiing one time further north. A great state with some beautiful scenery as well.

David, I think it would be good if AdvRiders from every state put together a summary of their State Parks and, perhaps, other scenic areas for the rest of us to enjoy. A friend from PA was down yesterday and we talked about how much of your state is rural and remote. Great riding I'm sure.

Good job sir! Photos and narrative are first rate.
After reading this, I realized that I really need to do a better job with my SP ride reports. I never count the steps.

Nice report and pretty country! As a geologist I appreciate your interest in rocks, too. I'm like you, I wave to anyone riding on two wheels, could care less what kind of cycle they're riding. I've even been known to wave at folks driving in convertibles but only if they have the top down!

There are more OCD's out there than you think.

I've been meaning to speak to you about that.

And I know that you are not one of the OCD members. If you were you would have asked if the 97 steps included the landing at the top or not.

Doug, thanks for reading my ramblings. Some of us in Tennessee are having a little fun writing up the various State Parks (we have some nice ones). You are also in a great part of the country for riding.

Funny you mention the waving. Since I started riding bikes a few years ago, I've liked the way that people on motorcycles typically wave at each other. Somehow a simple thing like a motorcycle can cut through the differences people have for at least the time it takes to pass each other on a highway. Maybe the presidential debates should be held on motorcycles with the candidates required to ride in circles constantly passing each other. Who knows, maybe it would help.

I'm sure you've been there before but Cheaha Resort State Park is a really nice park just outside of Birmingham. My brothers and I stayed there one night this summer and visited Barber Motorsports Museum the next day.
