Broke camp and started by driving through the mountain (The Cumberland Gap Tunnel) from Virginia to Tennessee. Then drove up to Pinnacle Overlook. While it is not nearly as high (2440 ft.) as Clingsman Dome or Mount Mitchel it has its own unique spectacular view. Perched above the town of Cumberland Gap, Tennessee you can see the town, the roadway going into the Cumberland Tunnel, and mountain line that divides the mountain between Virginia and Kentucky… an aerial view from one state of three states.
Once I came down from Pinnacle Overlook I preceded on the Wilderness Road north to where Col. Henderson, Col. Luttrell, and Daniel Boone founded Fort Boonseborough, near present day Lexington, Kentucky.
