From Shaker Village, we drove to Pine Mountain State Park. Beautiful scenery. Fall colors were finally starting to show.
The next day, we set off for Cumberland Gap. Called the “Gateway to the West” this is the passage the settlers took through the mountains as they traveled to the west. We drove up the mountain (you can also walk) and hiked a short way up to Pinnacle Overlook at the very top. The panoramic view is stunning.
The view spans three states – Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
It turned into a beautiful day and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. From Cumberland Gap, we moved on to Cumberland Falls for the last three days of our trip. That will be another post.
Thanks for visiting today and letting me share some of my memories with you. I hope you’ll come again.
