Stopping to take in these kind of views will definitely make you feel better about our world! Our first stop after Fancy Gap is one of my favorite cabins with a great story - Puckett's Cabin (mm 188.8). Orlena Hawks Puckett (1837-1939) lived in this cabin. After having 24 children, none of which lived past infancy, she started delivering babies for other women. More than 1000 babies were delivered by this amazing woman who lived to be 102!
A quick drive into Floyd gave us a completely different experience. The Visit Floyd website says that Floyd is a state of mind as much as destination and we felt that! This tiny town with a population of 425 people has so much to offer that a day trip just to Floyd is another recommendation. The Floyd Country Store is a popular destination along "The Crooked Road" with its famous Friday Night Jamboree. However, these are not happening right now because of Covid-19. They are having live bluegrass in the amphitheater behind the store on Friday evenings. Please check their schedule. however.
The art scene in Floyd is thriving and we made a couple stops at art galleries. We visited The Maggie Gallery - thanks to Ron Campbell, the owner for spending time with us! You have a lovely place!
