High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.

The view from the Unaka Mountain Overlook outside of Erwin, TN. This overlook is one of the many wonders to experience along the 12 mile long Unaka Mountain Road which climbs and curves its way over and around the mountain. A short spur off of the road lead to this overlook. In years past, this short section of road was in terrible shape. But they've now cleared and smoothed it -- and also cut back the brush opening the vistas to the south. I still, however, recommend a higher clearance vehicle for this trip.
