TN - VA Scenery



We spent a good amount of time in and around the Appalachian Mountains: Knoxville, TN, Greenville TN, Pigeon Forge, TN, Kingsport, TN, and Norton, VA. Truly a very beautiful area with friendly "hometown" people.

On the road to Norton, VA, a restored cabin Bridge over the Clinch River
Bridge along the mountain by Powell Valley, heading towards Norton, VA Pictures cannot begin to do justice to the spectacular beauty of Powell Valley... This is in the valley
More Powell Valley ...perhaps close to being the "garden of eden...."

Powell Valley. We went waaaaay up to High Knob and climbed the lookout tower
You can see 7 states from High Knob... Not sure which these are, they're all trees! Tom on the High Knob observation tower
Another view from the tower And yet another. It was a quiet evening and a spectacular view
Looking down at Norton VA, Flag Rock is in the foreground (see the flag?) Another view from the park at Flag Rock
Yet another from Flag Rock The sun was setting and we got some stunning photos.
Looking down at Norton, VA In Dorchester, the church where Tom's grandpa was a preacher
We attended the Friday night open air Bluegrass concert at Kingsport, TN On the road between TN and NC... a very steep and winding road
