I washed the Durango after lunch then we headed toward the Great Smoky Mountain NP - on an auto tour that we have not taken yet. Then it started to sprinkle - then showers, then rain. O'well it is my fault - I washed the car.
We went on Roaring Fork Rd that loops up from the 1300 foot level at Gatlinburg to over 3000 feet, then back to Gatlinburg again -- a total of about 20 miles. Much of the road was one way and limited to 10 mph up and down. The view was mostly of dense forest land with a few historic rustic [hill billy type] cabins. There was also some creeks with large roundy [new word too] boulders that seemed to follow the road on the way up and down.
Tomorrow we head out to Louisville, KY to see the Kentucky Derby Museum and Churchill Downs.
