This is looking south on the old Tweetsie in Doe River Gorge at Pardee Point.
It may look like this again soon.
I hadn’t noticed it when I took this picture, but can you see the face in the far rock?
This is the second tunnel on the line heading away from Johnson City up through Doe River Gorge. It’s centered at 36.265916, -82.171331.
My hiking buddy, clad in plastic against the cold, January rain, is standing in the western portal. This part of the line is intermittently active during the summer for excursions from the Ministry.
