Home sweet home

I just got back from visiting my brothers in Tennessee (Cumberland Gap area) and thought I would post a few pictures.  It was gorgeous in some areas while the leaves were mostly gone in other areas (very early for down there).
 This was take from the pinnacle in Cumberland Gap National Historical Park.  If you are ever in that area you definitely want to drive up there an take in the view.

 This is a panoramic from the pinnacle.  It shows the whole are and would best be viewed by right clicking the picture and opening it in a new tab/window so you can enlarge it.  If you look closely you can where the road enters the mountain on the Tennessee side. Middlesboro, KY is the town on the right side of the picture and as you can see it still has fog over it.  I'm sure you also noticed that there is foggy areas throughout the whole picture.

 This is a little closer view of Middlesboro, KY. The lake in the picture is Fern Lake and that is where Middlesboro gets their water.

This  is the actual town of Cumberland Gap, TN.  I would speculate that some of the left side of the picture is actually in Virginia.  I don't know exactly where the Tennessee-Virginia line is.

Great photos, Neal... I think the TN/VA state line is fairly close by... Seems like a figured it out one time when we were there.....?????

Love the Fall colors.. Most of ours are gone --especially this weekend with all of the winds we have had.
