If this works it will be an absolute miracle. I even said a little prayer at church this morning as I knew I needed divine assistance. I'm still working on resizing pics from my new Digital camera so I can attach them directly in posts. So if this works, thanks to Dnvr (or divine intervention) I've made some progress.
Nothing really spectacular from this solo ride but am using these pics as my "test" for the process.
It seems we're so visual and everyone craves for pics!!
Not even sure about captions so will provide separate explanations:
Gold Hill is an "intersection" in rural NC that is a nice place to cruise by on training rides. When I say rural, it is not close to anything for miles so it's great riding territory. It's very unique in that an individual has set out to restore the village and is doing an incredible job. Well over 100 years ago it was thriving with the discovery of gold in the community. So much for the background:
The "developer" put up some nice banners decorating for the season-verifies I'm in Gold Hill!
The Gold Hill Post office which is a neat store-I had to get my bike in the picture as well.
The Gold Hill Church that has been restored-this picture is for PastorBob.
After leaving Gold Hill getting further into the "wilderness":
Moose sighting-for a minute I thought I had made a wrong turn and had crossed into Canada.
High Rock Dam-Lakes/Dams are owned by Alcoa. This was the furtherest point out for that ride (about 40 miles from my house)
I hope they show up and you enjoy the experiment!
