Country Wisdom

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
--Reba McEntire (b.1955) country singer

The old Osbourne Farm is found along a beautiful stretch of the Appalachian Trail outside of Shady Valley, TN. This particular section crosses wide open, grassy fields offering stunning views of the valley below and Mount Rogers in the distance. (click photo to enlarge).

Directions: From Elizabethton, TN, take route 91 (Stoney Creek Road) 19 miles to the intersection with Cross Mountain Road -- here you'll find a large gravel parking area on your right. (The town of Shady Valley is another four miles east).
