Awesome stuff! I haven't been down to the dragon in a while now but it is good to see that not much changes. The overlook is still one of the prettiest places to sit and relax.

The Cherohala is a lot of fun as well. There used to be an ice cream place about 100 miles down that road from the start of it near 128. Not sure if it is still there but we used to make that run at least once every trip to the dragon.

Good times! Glad you stayed safe and looks like you had a blast!

Where in NC? Charlotte here.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~Hunter S. Thompson

The dragon never changes

Actually they widened some of the "pull-off" spots on the dragon....definitely a positive change.

Not sure about the ice cream place.....now I want to go back for some

And yes....glad I made it back safe and had fun

Do it! You definitely won't regret it
