In Clintwood Virginia there is a huge Observation Tower in the Jefferson National Forest and is the highest summit of Pine Mountain. The deck is at an elevation of 3,144 feet above sea level with a tough 183 steps to reach the top.

Once on the deck you can see 5 states, even Ohio on a clear day. Plus the most amazing view I have ever seen in my life. Its a great place to star gaze or which in my case to see the full moon rise.

Me my dad and @intrepidthinker also went on a 2 mile hike to a 50ft waterfall that was amazing. If it would have been after a good rain the water would of been flowing more. So I done a quick meditation so close to the waterfall I could feel the mist hitting my body. Next to the waterfall was a huge cave we had to check out. That's when we proceeded to crack open a ice cold Brewski and relax from the long walk.

After the long hike back, manly uphill we set up camp at the cabin. Had to collect firewood then took a birthday shot for the BIG 31. I took my drone with me but we were so busy and the wind was to strong to fly it. That was the only disappointment of the trip because I was gonna fly it as high as I can off the tower and post the video. Even though it probably would of lost control and wrecked to never be seen again but it would of been worth it. Was a great trip and had a blast with my pops and bro!!!!!
