Re: From the high parking lot

;-) It's a county highpoint, not state highpoint, fyi. ;-)

From the high parking lot  Sucess!

Yesterday was in the 70s and sunny...today was butt-cold with rime and frost everywhere. We took the skimpy route to the summit (Husband, plus Mom & Dad) enjoyed the views then strolled on down and headed back for Thanksgiving Turkey leftovers. :) Cold, wet, chilled-to-the-bone type of day. Still decent views available due to the mowed summit area.

No Tower.  Sucess!

Hiked up from the campground. It was about 3 miles round trip and a nice little walk. I was saddened by the loss of the observation tower on top. With the tower gone, there were no far views from the knob.

Cheaters Route...  Sucess!

"Hiked" up from the parking area just below the summit. Was not in the area for long so did not seek other options. It was perfect for my 4 and 2-year old companions though. The views from the top were breathtaking. The foliage was beautiful.

Route Climbed: From Big Stone Gap Date Climbed: July 1971  Sucess!

Once past the coal trucks of Pennington and Big Stone Gap this was quite relaxing driving. I drove most of the way up this one and hiked the balance. There was a little lake near the top. I found the views to be quite good.
