These 318 curves are known as the Tail of the Dragon and each year thousands of national and international bikers take a pilgrimage here. One of the most sought after 11 miles in the biker kingdom. We weren't on bikes but what a treat we had maneuvering the curves, dodging the motorcycles and stopping along the way to see the bikes approach these curves at almost a horizontal pitch...knees touching the pavement as they blurred by.
The image above is a stopping point along the way. The lake below finally arrives and the road finishes out along the lake.
