Dragons Tail TN to NC August 2008

Here are some photos from my trip to ride the Dragons Tail.  11 miles of US129 with 318 curves that climbs over the Smokey Mtns between TN & NC. 

While on the road a few photographers where snapping pictures of everybody who went by.  I purchased a few of those shots to add to this page the other pictures I took myself :)
