Tail of the Dragon

In June 2012 several club members made a pilgrimage to Fontana Village, NC via the famous US 129 highway, also known as the Tail of the Dragon. A great time was had by all, and we stayed two nights at the Fontana Village Resort. We also drove the Foothills Parkway and the Cherohala Skyway.
