Pinnacle Overlook--Part II

If you did not see yesterday's post talking about the Pinnacle Overlook in Cumberland Gap, TN, click HERE. Today I am sharing another set of pictures from the Pinnacle. This sign above is not very good due to the shadows and angle, but I wanted you to see where the three states (TN, KY, VA) meet--on the mountain.

From where I stood to take this picture near the Pinnacle, we were in the state of Virginia... Amazing how we can put one foot in one state and another foot in another state!!!!! ha

Here is a picture of Fern Lake... Above the lake, to the left, somewhere on that mountain is where the three states meet. I'll bet they really struggled finding the boundaries, don't you????

This Ole' Virginia Gal was happy to be here. Since I was raised about 50 miles to the east of here in Big Stone Gap, VA, this almost felt like home. I had visited Cumberland Gap when I was a child, but really don't remember much about the area. I do know that I had a childhood friend who moved to Middlesboro, KY --and I lost track of her. Maybe if I mention her name (NITA CARNES), she will see this blog post and contact me... ha ha

George took this photo from the Pinnacle, of one of the buildings on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN. This was quite a distance from where we were.

We didn't see much color while we were here, but I did notice some Fall color while we were at the Pinnacle. Pretty, isn't it? I can't wait until we have more color in our area.

I am fascinated by rocks/boulders ---and there were some beauties while we were at the Pinnacle. Do you want to stand under this 'leaning' rock????? ha ha

I love to look at big rocks and find shapes... What do you see in this one???? One thing which jumps out at me is the open mouth of an alligator... Can you see the top part of his open mouth sticking up????? ha ha

Tomorrow I will have one more set of photos from the Pinnacle, and they are my favorite ones since we went back up there at sunset.... SO--tune back in tomorrow for more!!!!!

Look what we had at our home last night. This is our first fire of the Fall season.. Yesterday was chilly and wet (although we got very very little rain)---so it was a perfect time to take the chill out of the house. YEAH---Fall is HERE.

Hope you have a great Tuesday.
