Despite some travel hiccups we arrived last Friday afternoon at our B&B in Cumberland Gap where we stayed in a historic building that at one time functioned as a grist mill but was an art school even before that. Our room had a view of the "pinnacle" in Cumberland Gap National Park.
When we arrived the innkeeper was nowhere to be found so we sat in the little park across the street for awhile and admired the lovely butterflies. We wandered down to the end of the street and found the Daniel Boone post. Across the street from that was the Cumberland Gap National Park and we looked at the trail map. The cell phones finally cooperated so we left a message for the innkeeper and took off on a little hike.
We hiked out to the actual gap and then continued on past the Daniel Boone marker and up to the tri-state marker where we stood in Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky all at once. There was a nice view of Cumberland Gap coming back down the mountain.
