The Snake

When I have a choice I always like to drive the two lane backroads and avoid the interstates (zero miles on this trip so far). So yesterday I was on US 421, which was a twisty Tennessee mountain road. After 45 minutes or so I rolled into Shady Valley, just a wide spot in the road with this country store.

It was only then that I learned that I had been driving "THE SNAKE" a road that is on a lot of motorcycle riders "must ride" list and a road that the locals just deal with. The van did pretty good, and the scenery was great.

Oh, the country store has a pretty good chillly dog if you ever want to give The Snake a drive.
