  1. I like a scene like this. This here would allow me to think, clear my mind, breath, relax, and just worry free of things in life. I like a clear blue sky and the brightness of the area.I vision myself traveling across the world. Learning new things to better understand the way of living. Knowing different cultures can really bring great strength within a person to become wiser and creative. Looking at photos like this bring motivation to my heart. I will get there one day to get up and go without worries and live.

  2. That looks beautiful! I would love to go to a place like that but im unfortunately afraid of heights :S

    1. If you are afraid of heights you really wouldn’t like McAffee Knob, it is a lookout point with nothing between you and an epic drop off the side of the mountain. It makes for some pretty dramatic photo opportunities but it made me nervous sitting so close to the edge!

  3. This is a wonderful place. I would really like to be up there and enjoy the
    view. Can’t possibly imagine what it be like and what’d it feel like to be up there and maybe take a picture of yourself.

  4. Virginia is my birth place, and I am quite familar with this photo op. I probably have a picture of myself up there and I know I have pictures of friends there. I was interested to read that Lee’s brother lives in Roanoke, that is where I moved to Wisconsin from. There can’t be that many English guys in Roanoke, maybe I knew him. I hope you all enjoyed your visit to the “Star City” and made your trek to Mill Mountain.
