We woke this morning to cloudy skies and a little sprinkles – where was the sun! We packed up, emptied our tanks and away we went anyway.
We have been so blessed to be able to see all the color changes as we traveled. I said that Pennsylvania was the best place to be during the color changes but I have to retract that now. Anywhere along the Appalachians is just BEATIFUL!
Pictures from along the way:
The clouds are lifting – :
Check out these mountains – oh my!:
Row upon row of mountains – another oh my!:
We arrived at Cumberland Gap National Historic Park - Wilderness Campground.
After filling with water we found an electric site and set up. Two of the loops have electric (30 and 50 amp) and the whole campground is first come, first serve.
If you look at a map, this park is located at the corner of Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. The campground is in Virginia and the Visitor Center is in Kentucky but you need to go into Tennessee to get to it. Cool!
After setting up, we went to the visitor, saw two movies, talked to the rangers about tours and hiking, and signed up for the Cave Tour tomorrow. We took a little tour thru the Historic Town of Cumberland Gap, TN – Cute! Back home, the sun was out and we finished the day with a great campfire.
We will be here for a few days so stayed tuned and enjoy today!
