Few pics from today's ride

Not too long of a ride today... about 150 miles or so. At one point I was almost ready to call it off and come home cuz all these random storms kept popping up all over the place. But I decided to change my route a little bit and give it a shot and see what happens. Worked out pretty good, only got a very little bit of light rain for a short period, nothing big at all, then just some wet roads, and the rest of the time it was actually pretty nice

Anyways, this is what I got to tango with all day long.... this was near the very beginning of the day, lol. So needles to say, I went the other way

Made my way up NC 181/Brown Mountain

Messed around with a few panoramas with a new app I found for my phone

Picture quality isn't that great in these.... not sure if there's a way to improve it or not, I'm still messing around with it, lol. Anyways, interactive panorama

Made my way up the Blue Ridge Parkway, stopped at the Grandfather Mountain overlook. Clouds were starting to roll out and sunshine moving in

Made a stop at the Linn Cove Viaduct on the Parkway.... always a favorite spot

Still lots of low lying clouds in the area

Then as I was sitting there, a huge cloud started to pretty much fully cover the whole area I was in

Here it comes! LOL

That's about all I got today.... it was starting to get late and I didn't have a clear visor with me so I made my way home. All in all other than all the storms moving around, wasn't a bad day for a ride.... humid but not terribly hot out so felt pretty good
