If you come to Norton, you must go to the High Knob Recreation Area. And if you're brave, climb up to flag rock. Unless you're a thin person, you won't make it through the crack you'll have to climb through to pose with the pole, but you'll still get close enough to say you've been there.
This play runs June through August of every year. 2003 will be its 40th season.
The Trail of the Lonesome Pine is a love story. I got to see this play for the first time last summer. Unfortunately, a downpour rained out the very last part of the play, so a tour guide verbally explained the rest of the story. I've got to go back this summer and see it myself. My friend Valerie McQueen played the leading part- June Tolliver. We were all very proud of her. And she sings like an angel. BRAVO, Valerie!
