Great food, friendly people
Had a really good fried bologna sandwich at the Shady Valley Country Store. We rode the route from Damascus, VA to Shady Valley, to Mountain City, TN and then back to Damascus. Route 133 from Dasmascus to Shady Valley was a nice stretch of road through a valley. You might even see a black bear or two. Stop at Backbone Rock and make the very steep climb to the top if you have the energy. There is a good sized parking lot on the southwest side of Backbone Rock.
