Its the bridge over the railroad on Binfield Road, at the intersection with Morganton road is the old Mastercraft Plant, and their testing pond.

New Tag



This former Baptist Church is in a town that was abandoned after Chilhowee dam was finished. According to some of the reading I just did some of the town was flooded by Chilhowee Lake.

EDIT: I forgot to mention they really mean the gate is closed at 3:00PM. at least this bike is light enough to drag under the gate

I thought that was the bridge I had been across. Didn't realize the old Mastercraft plant was near by. The new tag, I was just by there Saturday..
Oh, nice ride

There's a better picture on Wikipedia.

If you google Scona Lodge there is a really good read on it, a lot of pictures of the lodge and just so you can get pissed at TVA their reason for destroying it.

Known as the "Saratoga Springs" of the south. The glory of this resort is all gone and evidently they don't like you poking around to much. Oh of course Sam Houston was also involved!

That's an awesome new tag! In fair weather it's over an hour and a half from me. Not bloody likely I'll start for it with snow on the ground. I'll have to visit there some time in good weather.

Heh, it's less than 10 minutes from me. Hopefully it'll warm up a bit so I can get out before it gets absurdly cold next week.

I really wanted to get the calderwood tag on New Year's Day but I just couldn't fit it in the schedule. I'm a bit surprised the gate was open.

This is a few miles away from the last tag. It's maybe the top bird watching observation area in East TN.

Brown Honda that was super clean?

Based on the shadows I'm guessing I was there before you but I didn't try to upload it straight from my phone at the time. I was there about 1:30.
