Travelers Rest or "TR", as this South Carolina city is known around the area to locals, is just north of Greenville. The name "Travelers Rest" came from the fact that it is situated almost directly against the border with the North Carolina mountains. Travelers would stop for a while in the town, before they began the difficult journey up into the mountains. Often, travelers would have to spend the winter there, waiting for the snow to clear in the mountains, before continuing northward. Old School found TR while headed south from Ashville when the weather man said “Lows tonight in the teens with a good chance of snow” As neither a tent or a motorcycle have any business in snow OSB headed South to Travelers Rest!
Left Travelers Rest at first light about 39 degrees. Headed north on Hwy 276 then west on Hwy 64 then North again on Hwy 28 to Franklin N.C. Great mountain roads, lots of twist & turns, up & downs, shifted 987 times, stopped where I could to snap a pic or two. I could not wait till tonight to see the pics. Stopped a Mickey’s ordered a Big Mac Meal, pulled the laptop out & loaded the pics. Here they are.
