We had never been to Harlan, Hazard or Whitesburg. We’ve heard people talk about these places all of our life so we decided to do a little road trip and drive through these places. It was pretty chilly so we didn’t walk through the towns or anything but we did see some beautiful scenery.
Our route: Bristol, VA 421 North. We went through Gate City, VA, Duffield, VA, Pennington Gap, VA into Harlan, KY. From Harlan we took 119 and it had some breathtaking views! We took 15 up to Hazard then backtracked on 15 then North on 119 to US23. We then followed 23 into Wise, VA and made our way back home.
It was a nice road trip. We didn’t really “do anything” other than drive and look around. It was great to spend time with my family though and always nice to go places I’ve never been. Maybe in the summer we can ride back over and get to walk around in the towns.
