Nicki’s dormitory is beautifully situated in the Cumberland Mountains. The weather was hot and humid, but the scenery was beautiful. I can only imagine how stunning it is when the Fall colors come out.
We spent most of the time at the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, where we hiked for a few miles before driving to the Pinnacle Overlook for spectacular views. This park and overlook are barely a mile from Nicki’s dorm. The park is situated where Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia meet, so it’s easy to forget which state you’re in. We left Nicki’s dorm in Tennessee, entered the park a half mile away in Kentucky, then stood at the overlook in Virginia.
Today we’ll head to Knoxville to see what we can find there.
