Our last day was short (36 miles - http://connect.garmin.com/activity/91648607), but hilly. The route brought us just south of Nashville and had lots of rolling hills along with a few climbs. The Parkway was full of bikers and devoid of traffic. We started at the John Gordon House, located near the Duck River. It was great chance to snap a few final shots of the crew.

A few more hills and rollers brought us to the Natchez Trace Parkway Arches. The arches are a concrete double arch bridge that extends almost 1,600 feet and 150 feet over State Route 96 and a heavily wooded valley. Another great photo opportunity.
