>Here are a few more photos I like…just for you to view!

This is me…at the pinnacle of Roan Mountain.  I always feel on top of the world when I ride…a photo like this is worth a 1000 words.

This shot is one that I hope helps the viewer understand a bit about being “behind the bars” and the views.

This is from Cades Cove (Great Smoky Mountain Park). Perhaps my favorite shot from this day’s ride.

Well…perhaps not my favorite. This park is so beautiful. Amazing shots all around you.


Here’s another shot from Cades Cove…yeah it’s hard to pic the “Best” one of the day!


People will tell you, “Don’t go to Cades Cove on your motorcycle.”  I’m here to tell ya, if you go early enough, and on a weekday… riding though Cades Cove is very rewarding. You sure can’t stop and grab photos like this while driving your car through the loop.

This has to be my all time favorite home.  It’s on Flag Pond Road.  With Sam’s Gap in the distance, and a grave yard up the hill.

This is the deconstruction of the Iron bridge on Iron Bridge Road in Carter County, TN. I was sad to see this.

I love being able to stop and notice “the little things” when I ride.  Something you don’t normally do when riding in a 4 wheeler….

I hiked a small portion of the Appalachian trail. This is the mountain top from Stony Creek and Shady Valley. LOVELY

A short hike from TN 97 is this wonderful sight.  I parked my bike and hiked the AP Trail a short distance. Next year, I want to hike farther. I’m thinking of joining the local hiking club.

Here we are at Grandfather Mountain. Perhaps one day I will get off the bucks to actually walk into the park and out to the sight seeing platform…???? NAAAAA

This is a shot of the New River Gorge Bridge in West Virgina.  I’m down at the bottom of the gorge on an old iron bridge that crosses the New River…what a wonderful state WV is. I can’t wait to do this again!

This is Kanawa Falls in West Virgina.  I love that state for riding. What a grand time I had.

This is a beautiful mill house in West Virgina.  Don’t you agree about it’s beauty?

I can go on forever…but it’s best I don’t! Did ya enjoy these shots? More to come!

  1. >Wow, they're all beautiful shots. I'm obsessive enough that I think I might have waited exactly 4 miles to get that over-the-handlebars shot.

  2. >Those are some beautiful shots. The more I see of your pictures, the more I long to take a ride out that way and see the sights myself.

  3. >Absolutely lovely photographs, certainly your WV shots make it look like a beautiful riding area and I love that over the handlebars shot – great stuff Chessie. Best wishes for the New Year to you and yours, stay on two wheels!

  4. >Very nice pictures and Happy New Year to You!

  5. >Hey Chessie, love the photos, but I have a question about the first two…Do you normally wear a full face helmet or is that just a winter thing? You strike me as a half helmet kind of girl…just wondering?The second photo, what megapixel did you shoot it at? I only ask because I would like to use it on my office wall (blown up) if you don’t mind…I plan on enlarging my blog main photo (my hand and foot while riding) and thought yours would look good along side mine…what do you think? Big AL

  6. >Al contact me at marilynelmorephotography@gmail.comfor all the information regarding the photos. I'll talk to you there about them OK?The helmet question. For the last 39 years I've worn ONLY 1/2 shell(or less). I was involved in a slow moving accident in 2006, where I wasn't wearing a helmet that caused me to change my perceptions about helmets. Just this pas fall, I was given the chance to review this Nolan helmet, and I've found I LOVE it. It's more aerodynamic than any 1/2 shell I've ever worn. Much less stress and tension on the neck over the miles. I will now wear this helmet 365. I like it this much. My review on the helmet was seen in Iron Works…but I think I will post the elongated version of the review here soon.

  7. >I just never get enough of these pictures of yours. I cant wait to see what 2011 brings for you. Whatever it is, there are sure to be lovely shots involved!! Im counting on it..

  8. >Great job with the photos…Love the handlebar shot….as well as the other ones.Helmet is very important…It took me 14 months to recover from my accident…so now it is also full face helmet

  9. >This is the good blog with good images and good details. Please keep on posting the more stuff. I will like to hear more from you.

  10. >Like Alan said, 3.5 miles later and the picture would have been perfect 😉 specially if you were doing 55mph 🙂 beautiful pictures, specially love the butterfly and the mill. The one over the bars, was that with a point and shoot or a large format camera? looks amazingly sharp.

  11. >I always enjoy your photos!! 🙂
