Traffic heavier near town, but thinned the farther out we rode. We still had some traffic, trucks and otherwise, but mostly I found the riding okay. The land is changing. The swamps are gone and we are into rolling hill country.

Next we visited the National Cemetery. The headstones went on and on over the hills and out to an overlook of the Tennessee River.

|Cicada. Love their little red eyes.|
We did finally find our exit and rode about 5 more miles into town and to our motel. A good day. The rain was mostly a non-issue and most of the day was dry. I enjoyed the visit to the park.
Sorry Dom, no food porn again. I had a hamburger and onion rings, but it was after 3:00 before we had lunch. Needless to say photography was the last thing on my mind at that moment.
