We learned after our first chance encounter with this mountain high drive to plan the trip with the sun at your back. This was the first ride with Fall colors, and it was really gorgeous. Equally lovely was the "smoke" or low clouds and fog blanketing the valleys below as the sun came up. In the past, we met virtually no one, but as pretty as it was, this time we met quite a few other tourists and bikers out for a beautiful drive. The Tellico River is a pretty site, and it's too bad there are not more areas to pull of and get a photo up or downstream. The Nut n Fancy restaurant in Tellico Plains where we ate before was closed for the season, so we found the Telecafe. Separate excellent revue!
