One great thing about running this blog are the people who tell you about the great places they’ve been. This past week my friend Mr. P was telling me about the Cradle of Forestry down in Brevard. While there is a part of the Cradle that you do pay to tour there is alot that is free. It sounds like a very enjoyable family experience which would be educational, close and free. What more could you want?
Unfortunately I haven’t been to the Cradle of Forestry. This week I was busy going over to the Tri-Cities for some shopping and R&R. The family and I spent some quality time over there and got a few things we needed. But what I want to talk about was the trip back. I’ve driven that route many times so I decided to take the scenic route.
At Erwin I turned on 107 and ran it all the way to Highway 11E in Jonesborough. Then I took 11E toward Greenville. I turned left on 351 and followed it all the way to Highway 70. I ran this into North Carolina, through Marshall and back to Asheville. It was a nice drive and here is a bit I want to share with you.
This is a really cool bike used by the Unicoi County, TN Sheriff’s Department. Let’s hear it for the men and women of Law Enforcement!
Jonesborough, TN is a beautiful town in its own right. Definitely worth a day trip.
Well, hope you enjoyed my first road trip of the year. Everybody take care and travel safe.
