Pinnacle State Natural Area
These were taken in 2008. We are near Lebanon VA. This is Pinnacle State Natural Area Preserve, along Big Cedar Creek just before it spills into the Clinch River. Near the confluence was one of the biggest trash gyres I’ve seen so far. Boy, the crap people throw in the creeks and rivers is disgusting.
This is Pinnacle Rock. One site says it’s 400′ tall, another says it’s 600′. Either way, it’s fairly tall. It’s at 36.960942, -82.049670.
These are the falls on Big Cedar Creek.
This the Clinch River. We were in the middle of a drought at the time but, even so, my late big brother, who was an outdoor writer and was familiar with many creeks and rivers in this area, said the Clinch was “pretty narrow” anyway.
