Check the names of some of the turns. Really creative! When we arrived at Deals Gap we took some pictures of the Tree of Shame, a Can Am with the American flag honoring the fallen, and Reagan - the terrier. Reagan is only 2 but he has been to Alaska, the Artic Circle and done the perimeter of the United States and has NEVER asked "are we there yet?"
After leaving the Tail of the Dragon, which by the way straddles Tennesee and North Carolina, we drove through Pigeon Forge. Definitely a tourist trap - even closed. Dollywood isn't open on Thursdays. We got back around 2:30, tired and hot. It was 93 degrees in Gatlinburg. Kev, Larry and Sandy are sore tonight. All three have swollen hands - from holding the trikes on the road, clutching and braking. They did the Dragon in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears. We saw a lot of Can Am's and BMW's. It's like motorcycle heaven in this area. There are more motorcycles than cars. Hope you enjoy the ride on the Dragon and today's pictures.
Tomorrow we start for home. Hopefully the weather holds out till we get back to Cleveland.
