I skipped the last sunrise shoot so that I would have time to stop at Tallulah Gorge to reshoot the waterfall. Using Waze to navigate, after traveling 30 minutes I realized I was going north instead of south to Cherokee, NC. I stopped at a gas station and they told me the mountain road that I normally should have taken was closed due to snow and ice. It's great that Waze knew this and rerouted me.
I stopped at Clayton for breakfast. I had gotten a recommendation for the Clayton Cafe from the uglyhedgehog.com photography forum. When I got out of my car it was extremely windy. In the cafe they told me there had been extreme wind warnings. I thought I might skip the Tallulah stop since it was only 9 miles away. After having breakfast, which included a first time order of grits, I decided to go to Tallulah. Good decision because the wind wasn't a problem.
Back in Aventura. Next task is post processing the images.
