May 12, 2013. We celebrated Mother's Day with a hike at Cumberland
Knob, followed by a stop at Scoop's for ice cream.
August 15, 2004. We celebrated Papa's 60th birthday with a picnic and hike at Cumberland Knob. The two mile hike along the Gully Creek Trail starts at an elevation of 2885 feet, then drops 800 feet over the first mile before climbing straight back up on the second mile, crossing the creek a half dozen times at the bottom. Not bad for a crowd that included a one year old in a stroller, a three year old, a four year old and a six year old. The battery in my camera died during the hike, so I missed a lot of great photos. The scenery was beautiful and we made a pretty motley crew climbing up and down the trail, both of which I would have like to have had more pictures of. Luckily Deana had a disposable camera with her and sent me some of the pics below.
August 8th, 2004. We went to Cumberland Knob at mile marker 217 on the Blue Ridge Parkway for a family picnic and hike. The weather was too nice to not take advantage of being outside. The boys fell asleep on the way and enjoyed waking up to a picnic in the woods.
