Since we last visited Goodman and I took a li'l road trip north of our foothills to a quaint area where Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky meet - Cumberland Gap. The small town is in Tenn. It's really tiny, but as I said very quaint.
Some buildings were closed so I suggest visiting in spring or summer if you want to have a home-cooked meal while there,
This photo and the one below are courtesy of my photographer/granddaughter who visited the Gap in June. (The rest are mine.)
If you love vintage shopping don't miss Whistle Stop Antiques. The lady who runs it arranges all household items by color! It's the prettiest shop of it's kind I've ever seen.
After seeing all we wanted to in town we headed through the mountain via this tunnel to ...
the park. There's a gift shop at the park and a museum, also.
This is what I really wanted to see, the view into the valley below where the likes of Daniel Boone and others had been before us. Cumberland Gap was considered the gateway to the west in colonial and Revolutionary times.
Anytime the walk to an overlook shows a scene like this you know it's going to be good.
Lofty mountain grandeurs ...
You can see all three states mentioned above from the Pinnacle.
