4th day Bluff City TN-Natural Tunnel S.P VA

Map picture

Just an easy hour drive North to our C.G is located the so called “Eight Wonder of the World” and its official name Natural Tunnel S.P VA  http://www.virginiaoutdoors.com/parks/details/natural-tunnel-state-park.

It is a large park with a huge cliff where the water has made a tunnel and later on a railroad was put through it,now days coal trains are still making there way through this Tunnel.

The weather was fine and we hiked around the park to the lookout points and down the creek to the tunnel,along one of the hikes we saw these beautiful flowers surrounded by the green vegetation-it seemed very nice to us and I am glad to share with you all.

We took the back roads (marked the shortest on my GPS) back “home” through Kingsport ,grabbed an ice-cream and was in the trailer before the rain.

Those flowers are beautiful. Definitely a place to put on our list for our next visit to VA.
