The Sweezey's 'RV TIME' Journey travel blog

We enjoyed a historial festival in Cumberland Gap, VA

We had the place to ourselves, enjoying a nice walk.

The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail comes through this area.

This young man couldn't wait to have his picture taken.

Daffy is my co-pilot!

Newport KOA - SSS

We continued on Virginia State Route 58 to the western most point in Virginia, Cumberland Gap. We visited a Virginia State Park that was having a historical festival, enjoying lunch and a walk. We then went into Kentucky for a short side trip and then continued south in Tennessee to Newport. We're staying at the Newport KOA and, as usual, it is the standard offering - SSS.

We've seen some dry conditions on our trip, but this area in Eastern Tennessee is in the worst shape. Douglas Lake near Newport is down 90%, only a small river is left where once there were miles and miles of lake. There are homes on Lakeshore Drive that have docks and decks that were once on the lake. Now, they can't even see the river that's left. Sad . . .

Tomorrow, we head to the Great Smoky Mountains and look forward to seeing more beautiful fall foliage.
