MUSHY'S MOOCHINGS: FALL, BEER, AND PIZZA

FALL, BEER, AND PIZZA


Ron and I made the Cades Cove, Parson Branch Road, Highway 129, and Foothills Parkway loop Monday. You have to go into Cades Cove, pass the settlement rest stop area, and turn off on the Parson Branch Road to make the trek we made. The road had been closed for a long time, but now looks really good. The park has spent a large amount of money on repairing the washed out sections and the large rock they hauled in might prevent the damage from ever occurring again.

It was about four miles in, or about half way, that we pulled over at the Gregory Bald and Hannah Mountain Trail heads to stretch our legs. This area seems to be the high point of the road trip and the colors there were better than expected. Here are a few shots, but you can see more on my Flickr page.

The eight mile road ends at Highway 129, about halfway down the famous “Tail of the Dragon”, where motorcyclist and sports car enthusiast come to test their skills on 318 curves in a short 11 miles! It has gotten so bad there of late that the Tennessee Highway Patrol has threatened to close it down! Here is just one reason why!

We made a quick stop at the Calderwood Dam overlook, before winding our way down to the Foothills Parkway.

From there, we made our way back through Townsend and on into Maryville, where we stopped at Uno’s Chicago Grill to take on food and beer! Look at this Shroom® Deep Dish with chicken and spinach! And, the Uno Amber Ale®, which is brewed especially for Uno by Samuel Adams, is wonderful!

It was our first outing since Ron returned from a visit with his brother in California and since I had been sick. It was good to get out and stretch my taste buds again!

Beautiful scenery, and food. You do know how to live bud.

Just add golf and naked women and it would be heaven.

When did they put a Pizzeria Uno In Maryville? That must be fairly new. I love me some Uno...get it every time I'm in Chicago.

Beautiful pics. The leaves are very colorful. Didn't know they'd be so vibrant this year

Great fall photos, Mushy.

There's a contest up at my place, so you might like to head on over. It concerns the World Series, so entry time is limited.

Yep, now THAT'S how to top a pizza! Geez, you'd get a workout just lifting one of those!

I was looking at your beautiful pictures reading you nice post and then I hit on your "Here is just one reason why!" link and wham! I got caught on a maze of videos of fast cars and Harley Davidsons and it took me a while to remember that the reason I got threre in the first place is because I was here reading your post. lol Man you can get lost in the internet.

Looked like good clean fun to me. Deal's Gap is legendary among sport bikers, and I wish the road was in my neck o' the woods. It'd be fun either way...in the Miata or on the Suzuki. But MORE fun...much more... on the Suzuki.

Great pics, Mushy, but the vid was (obviously) my fave. Thanks for that!

Those pictures are beautiful, but not as gorgeous as that pizza:)

BTW, we have ATV riders ruining our trail. And in the winter, the snow mobilers pack the snow and ice and create ruts so bad that you can't even walk on it. It's a shame.
