2004-09-11, Blue Ridge Parkway, Brevard, Caesar’s Head

Hurricane Frances dumped a lot of rain on Western North Carolina this week. Some roads are still closed due to flooding and mudslides. We weren’t sure where today’s ride would take us, but we didn’t let that stop us.

After breakfast at Kostas Kitchen, we headed south from Asheville
on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Phil noticed that Russ & Bev’s trailer wiring harness was hanging loose and dragging, so we stopped to fix it and do a little sightseeing.

The parkway was closed a few miles south of the Pisgah Inn and US-276 was closed from there to Waynesville, so we turned toward Brevard.

As we made our approach into Brevard, Wil reported that he was getting low on ice cream. Dolly’s was closed, so we filled up at Love’s Ice Cream Shoppe on West Main Street.

After that break, we continued south on US-276 into South Carolina.

From Caesar’s Head, we continued south to SC-11 and then returned home on US-25 and I-26.
