Cumberland Gap National Park

Yesterday we went to Harrogate, Tennessee to take Robert to Lincoln Memorial University. He is going to be an adjunct professor for them teaching Marketing. It is only a part-time position, don't get excited. It's for their distance learning students in Knoxville. Anywho, Robyn and I went to their museum. They have a nice little museum and shop dedicated to Abraham Lincoln.
We drove through the Cumberland Gap Tunnel. It is huge!
Afterward, we had a picnic in the park and then drove up to the Pinnacle Overlook. On the way, we stopped at Fort McCook and after a short walk found this original Civil War cannon. What a view from there too.
We also saw a couple of deer!
Then we went to the Pinnacle. Wow wee! We could see Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. It was a beautiful day. It was interesting to look down on the town of Harrogate and also out to Fern Lake in the mountains.

Looking down on a soaring bird was different. We were above him!
It was a beautiful day for an hour and a half drive to this beautiful destination. We intend to go back when we have more time and explore more interesting destinations in the area like the little town of Cumberland Gap, the Wilderness Road and the Hensley Settlement.

We got home just in time to attend our Fireproof Your Marriage class at church. We are halfway through this class and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend the movie, Fireproof
