Lots of clouds but no rain....not a bad day for a double date.















That kickstand needs some help.















Still pretty green, is my official leaf peepin' report.

Doesn't look like it's been too frosty up there yet.















Pic doesn't show it quite as dramatically but that cloud looked like smoke but it was a cloud.















Just a hint of changing colors here and there.....

Found some more non-ethanol gas in Franklin after a fun run through Elijay.















Wayah Rd would be next.















But then I happened across a little mishap.

He seemed to be OK as it was merely a lowside and his gear saved his skin...the pretty little Duc just had some scuffed plastic.




























I hung out and followed him down to the lake just make sure he and the bike were OK.

Once below the lake the river was loaded with kayaks...and I mean loaded like I've never seen!















Crappy on the fly shots but you get the idea.















Seems it was some sort of special event down at the Nantahala Outdoor Center that coincides with this special release of water into the upper part of the river.

I didn't reserve a dinner at the Iron Horse so decided to eat at the NOC and watch the river roll by...was able to get a window seat in spite of the crowds....they were still mostly outside.

A few shots through from my table.....

That's still my plan...but I sure hope to be feeling better than I am today...woke up with some sort of nasty sinus thing going on.
