Followed some signs to a 'chateau'














Looked like it may be a nice place to watch a show.














It wasn't open for business yet that early in the morning and I was doubtful that there would be any musical acts playing on a Wednesday but there was nothing to stop one from having a stroll around the grounds...














The view from the restaurant's outside seating area...

What a crappy neighborhood that Will picked to build his 'ville' in, eh?



























I mean really, who still keeps covered bridges around nowadays anyway?

Your Versys would look good that color!


Funny you should peek in. I found the covered bridge in Woolwine after a reverse run of Beltcher Mtn.

It looks like that gate was designed to allow motorcycles only, doesn't it.





























Don't worry...there's a new bridge in service to get to the church nowadays.

Pulling out onto the 8 to run up Tuggles Gap I got in behind this 'stitch wearing DR650 rider...but he turned off on a side road soon after and I didn't follow so we didn't get to meet.














Soon afterwards I got stuck behind a line of cars and decided to break off on another side road to kill some time in hopes of having a clean run later.














Just when it was starting to become interesting...

Unfortunately I got stuck behind more traffic and just decided to pull off in a switchback and let 'em get on up and out of my way.

Looking back down at the positive camber banking.














....and looking uphill from the same spot.

Familiar scenes on canvas hang on the walls inside.














Looks like a pic I might take....especially the blurriness!

Continuing North on 8.......














....brings one to the town of Floyd.














It would appear to be having quite the artsy-fartsy revitalization these days!

I'll take 'Things found on dead end roads' for a thousand, Alex.
