Smoky Mountain Squallor

Big ride today down here in the Smoky Mountains. Got plenty to say but little energy to say it right now. For now though, my route. Was supposed to be a 30 miler with about 3000 feet of elevation gain but due to a later then desired start time and a serious thunderstorm with lighting within a quarter mile of me I cut it short. Apparently my route description wasn't quite correct... Turned out to be a 35 milder with about 3000 feet of elevation gain...

The rental Fisher Paragon was excellent, though the front shock I believe was set for someone much larger then I. This ride was just the kind of thing I needed/need to be doing these days. Absolutely beautiful!
