Cherohala skyway

As we all know it's leaf season up in the Mtns, and I missed most of it last year, s I decided to head up and get some pics this year. I packed up and headed up towards the hills. There are a few pics from Hwy 60





Made it to the Cherohla Motorcycle resort, got my cabin , unloaded the gear and decided to head out before it got too dark.



These pics are from a river that runs along the road on the way to the Skyway.....









On the way up the Skyway.....


























It was starting to get dark, and a little chilly. I decided to jut go a bit further and then turn around. Well I stopped, looked right and this is what I saw....Hello!!!!!











KAPOW......Obligatory bike shot....



Now back to the show.......




















Time to head back down the hill. It was getting a bit chilly, but I had to stop for one more pic....


The scene from my front porch the next day.......



Time to head back up, and see whats going on......





But first one or two more river shots....
























Up on the Skyway



























































The it was over to the "dragon" for a spin, and then home. As usual thanks for looking, and I hope that you enjoyed.

How come you didn't come out to the Fuzzy Beaver rally? There were a ton of us ATL types out there having a great time! You would not have been alone on your GS.

My work schedule has me off on Sunday and Monday. I didnt mind being alone on the ride......I wanted to stop and take pics. I know it can be annoying if your riding in a group. I heard that you guys had a geat time!!!! Yeah Ted....I have just had an overwhelming urge to ride,and take pics. Kinda like when I started riding again for the first time in years, couldnt stop. Also I have had people offer to buy some of the pics that I have posted () so I have been getting more and more encourgement to take the pics.

The Fuzzy Beaver rocked this year.

Well, the photos in this and your other threads have been fantastic. Keep at it! ;)

I used to switch bikes when I felt like I needed some new riding inspiration, but that doesn't seem to work as well lately. But I think I understand the appeal of taking photos even if I personally have a hard time taking myself out of a riding moment, so to speak, to take them myself. The day always feels too short, especially when the light is best in the (now) late afternoon.

Hmm. Mostly, I think I need to stop sleeping late on weekend (riding) days. ;)

I don't mind stopping for photos but you are right, in a big group that is a non starter. I was just trying to keep up this weekend, no time for photos.

I know what you are talking about. Last year I was kinda the same way, no real big desire to go anywhere. I would ride some places but just not have the inspiration, then I took my trip this year and it came back for both riding and pic taking. I took this trip just for the pics. I have been on the skyway numerous times, and it has to be one of my favorites that is why I took this time to stop and take pics. this time. I want to be able to look and see what I enjoy about it the most. Hope that makes some sense. Thanks again for the comments.
