Overlooking the lost cove


The bowl of the Lost Cove is on the right. The triangle-shaped mountain just off the finger of rock is the one on the map below that's on the NC/TN border. The mountain off the left frame is Flattop Mountain. Just barely visible beside it is "No Business Knob" and Temple Mountain is beside that. Erwin and Uncle Johnny's is at the base of the range beside Temple Mountain.


The red point is the overlook at GPS: 36.0550086,-82.38624382
