I'll leave that up to you. I'll just say, I've had enough super slab!
Now, let me show a few photos I took up there.

Great picks. I love that road. I have never taken it all the way to Mill Creek across the mountian. If you ever want to try that give me a shout.

New Tag

New Tag while you are here you should ride down and see the lake.
If Karl had fallen in and Burt would not have been able to pull himself to safety, this is where they would have ended up

New tag!

Here is the new tag:






You'll have to go over the hills for this one! This is the site of an Iron Works incorporated in 1837 while this area was still Indian territory. It is also on the site of an old cotton mill. The name of the mill and Iron Works is the same as the county in which it lies. Oh, watch out for the dummy in the guard house..

Originally, I wanted to keep the dam theme and was going to use the nearby dam (for the Mill) as the tag, but there really was not a dam good place to pull off. I dam near got hit while trying to get this pic, so decided to move it nearby! But if you see this, you are dam close to the tag!



This is really a cool area to explore if you have time!

Love that place and the rode in. There was a reunion of cast of extras from the movie Deliverance camping there this morning. So I took a pic and left in a flash. I did not feel like squealing like a pig that early.
