Scenic Sunday #133: Brush Mountain

Brush Mountain, Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.  September 23, 2010.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

In September, while visiting Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Betsy and I toured the Hensley Settlement.  The Hensley Settlement was established in 1904 by Sherman Hensley and was occupied until the establishment of the park in 1951.  I took this photo while walking along a fence-lined lane on top of Brush Mountain.

    Hello, Happy Scenic Sunday,

    Beautiful landscape. One of the reasons that I like participating is I learn about the history of beautiful places. Thank-you for the history of Cumberland Gap National Historical park.

    Ahhhhh! That is a beautiful pastoral scene! Gives me hope that spring is coming and all this wonderful snow will melt to nourish a gorgeous meadow like that!

    I’d like to sit on the fence with a bottle of cold beer and enjoy the landscape.

    It sure would be nice to walk along and see those colors right about now. I love when fences are made that way.

    Hi George, what a beautiful place to contemplate history.. like Robert Frost said in his poem ‘Mending Wall’ “‘Good fences make good neighbors’.

    That is very scenic! It’s almost three dimensional. Great shot George. Thanks for stopping by at mine.

  15. Hilda Says:

    So similar yet so starkly different from Friday’s post! But both are equally beautiful!

  16. Rose Says:

    I hate to admit this, but I have never been up there…and I know I would love it. This is an especially nice view!

    Well isn’t this a comforting photo — especially compared to what we’re looking at right now.
