Vacation October 21, 2020
We drove down Route 23 through Kentucky. We stopped
in Jenkins, Neon Junction, and Neon. Neon Junction is where
Connie's grandfather had a store. The building is still
there. I wish I had taken a photo of it.
We stopped at the Natural Bridge State Park in
Virginia (near Duffield, VA). It is an interesting geologic
site for sure.
|This is the boardwalk
going up to the tunnel area, and a panoramic view up to
the top of the area.
|Here are the tracks
headed for the natural tunnel (they go through a short
man made tunnel just before this.
|Looking into the tunnel. It is
curved so you can't see the end of the tunnel.
It is difficult to get a photo that represents the
whole thing. Go there an see it for yourself!
continued on through Kingston, TN, and on to Johnson City,
TN. Only because I had never been to either city. Can't say
that I missed a lot, although the country side is pretty
enough. The vegetation that doesn't change colors in the fall
was all very green. It's been a fairly wet fall there
apparently, just like we've had at home.
stayed overnight at the Doubletree in Johnson City, TN. Had a
great steak dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. We usually get the
big cowboy ribeye (something like 23 ounces) and split it.
