Johnson City

This past week, I got to visit Johnson City, TN. Some highlights (besides seeing family) were Eastern Tennessee State University, Scratch Brick Oven Pizza, homemade moonshine Pumpkin Ale and mountain views.

Some of those views are below of the ETSU Campus…where I worked for the day.

On my last day, I got up early to venture over to Roan Mountain. The plan was to drive 8 miles up to the top, Carver’s Gap, and catch a stunning view of the sunrise. The Appalachian Trail crosses Carver’s Gap which was an added bonus. Halfway up, the fog was thickening and I knew it was going to be too dense. I made it to the top, but all views were a lost cause, I could only see about 15 feet ahead! Oh well, it’ll be an excuse to come back and hike it instead.
