Views from Clinch Mountain....

 I think the above view is looking south or southeast off the Veterans Overlook on Clinch Mountain...
 not sure about the view above but the one below is looking East.  Maybe a little bit northeast.
Just thought I would show a bit more the part of the country that I grew up in.

When we took Driver's Ed in high school we drove over Clinch mountain....then it was a two laned highway with one switchback after another....I was glad it was not me doing the driving.  Now it is a four lanes.  Such a big change to how it was.  I bet the truck drivers really appreciate it...

I also wish I had views from back then...I don't know how the big rigs made it over.  Or maybe they took a different route.

Love it! We just love that area and plan extra time when we pass through so that we can stop and take as many pictures as we want to take. Your images are beautiful.

This is beautiful country. I like the shape of the lake in that first one. Lovely fall trees in all of them.

Fantastic views! I really like that first shot. I would have been terrified to have to take driver's ed on a mountain road! Would have been good for me probably, but I was so short and the cars so big, I had a lot of trouble learning to drive.

I wouldn't want to drive the roads with only two lanes. The four lanes must be much safer. The views are gorgeous!
