Dodging the Roadkill: A Misty Mountain Morning

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I just returned from another visit to the Smoky Mountains, as I wrap up my travel season. 

The beauty of this time of the year, while chasing the colors of the fall, is one of my favorite journeys.

This is how I will remember this time. 

A Misty Mountain

A Misty Mountain Morning

I awoke to the smell of the fresh mountain air.

To finish my ride, to where, I didn’t care.

The clouds were what greeted me, no sunlight in the air

This was a misty mountain morning.

The Cherohala Skyway, my path down the mountain

Leaning through corners, as the elevations were mounting

What lie ahead, only God  would know

I had no fear, to follow him I would go

This misty mountain morning.

Reaching for the sky, this mountain I would climb

Gliding through the clouds, mist covering my eyes

As close to heaven as this biker would find

And a prayer to release these earthly ties

Another misty mountain morning.

The beautiful colors that describe this season 

The purpose of my journey, would be my reason.

This road I absorbed deep into my being

My adrenaline pumping, at what I was seeing

This misty mountain morning.

A biker knows their journey touches their soul

Living on the edge, in places few people know

This moment in time, that I would not trade

With brothers I go, on this very day

Another misty mountain morning
