Sep 4, 2011 - Day 6

After resting and doing laundry yesterday afternoon, we proceeded to do some sightseeing. Big Stone Gap is home of the "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" and along the Music Trail. We arrived a couple of days late to see the drama of the Lonesome Pine and the museum was closed on Sunday. So we decided to drive about 18 miles to the Natural Tunnel State Park. Mother Nature carved a tunnel out of the rock through which they built a railroad. Currently, the only traffic through the tunnel is the Norfolk Southern Line which carries coal from the mine...

Sep 3, 2011 - Day 5

One evening we went to an auction in Duffield; it draws all kinds from all around, with all kinds of things to bid on. The only thing we bought, for $1.00 was a "bull" rope. Tracy and Chris have done well...

Nov 20, 2010 - Big Stone Gap VA (Nov. 3 - 10, 2010)

Next stop in our travels was Big Stone Gap, Virginia, in the Appalachia region, sort of in the corner where Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia meet. Visit BSG Beautiful country and we got to see more mountain trees going through fall. Big Stone Gap is where our son Chris (my stepson), daughter-in-law Tracy, and three grandchildren, Mackenzie, Zachary, and Cassidy, live. Willie was set up in Jesse Lea RV Park near town on the Powell River and the Green Belt Rec Trail, with views of mountains all around. Nice little park owned and run by...
