Harberson Road is a short east/west gravel road. It connects two paved county roads, and provides access to only a couple of homes, so it is very lightly traveled. It is less than a mile long, but seems miles from anywhere.
On the south edge of Harberson Road is an elevated “bench” about 3 feet higher than the road. On that bench at one of the hilltops, is a quiet place with a pleasant view. A good place for hot coffee and sunrise watching on a chilly morning.
With a thermos slipped into my saddlebag, I pedaled out into the darkness. Seeing the red eastern horizon, I selected an indirect route to my destination that would allow me to carefully time my arrival.
