Cades Cove, Tennessee
On Wednesday, August 4, I thought I would take the airhead to over to Cades Cove. What a mistake. For those of you that don't know Cades Cove is an 11 mile, one-way loop in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The problem is the traffic. It was over 90 degrees Fahrenheit and the old R80RT is an air cooled engine. At times there would be a three mile back up due to a deer feeding on the side of the road. I swear! City people!!
Once I finally got off the loop (it took 2 hours to go 11 miles!) I headed for Clingman's Dome. Higher Altitude = Lower Temperature
