Welcome to North Carolina!

Photo of the Day – 7/2/2011 – Football Road – NC Scenic Byway

I took a motorcycle trip down one of many North Carolina Scenic Byways today. This 90 mile round-trip was called Football Road – from Greensboro to Carrboro. It was very hot, but the ride was fun. A lot of farmland. But Kimesville Lake and Dam looked interesting. I can’t find much on the dam, but one other posted photo remarked that the dam could be from around 1812 where a grist mill once stood. The lake also flooded during when Hurricane Hazel came through in ’54.

There were multiple power lines running through the picture and I did my best to get them out. If anyone has any cloning tips, I would appreciate them! Enjoy.
