See that mountain covered in snow in the distance? That's Buffalo Mountain in the Cherokee National Forest. It's an absolutely gorgeous ride on a fairly low traffic road through the park. It's also a popular ride for area cyclists and motorcyclists. Here's a link to the route and elevation chart on Map My Ride. I got so wrapped up in enjoying the ride that I didn't take many pictures, but here's a few:
I really want to climb out on the end of that rock and just watch the river flow by.
The other side of Buffalo Mountain, over the Nolichcky River.
We came into this valley on a road that follows the river. Here's Mlle Moto getting some love from Shadowfax. :)
