From Tennessee to North Carolina

This is a traveling day from Chattanooga, TN to Cherokee, NC. The road we went on, Hwy 64, then 74, is a lot of up and down, steep grades, corners and twists. The speed limit varies from 25 mph to 65. We were surprised there was a lot of traffic on it, but there’s not much for the upper east-west in North Carolina and it is a holiday weekend.

We started out with an elevation of 832 feet. First picture below is of Lookout Mountain where the battlefield is that we were at yesterday and took pictures with an elevation of 1850 feet.  I think our highest elevation driving today was 2720 feet.

The 1996 Centennial Olympics was held on the Ocoee River in Tennessee. Also the 2013 World Freestyle Kayaking Championships were in another area of the river in North Carolina. There is a lot of wildwater rafting, kayaks, ziplines, etc. along this river. They definitely know how to make money on the Ocoee River. Lots of people out this Easter weekend, and I bet the water is cold!
