Finally got my clear day I'd been hoping for on the way back from Raleigh to stop at Big Walker lookout, and shoot some panos from the 100-foot observation tower at the Country Store. Climbing this spindly, shuddering tower is not for the faint of heart, but the view from the top is amazing! I am definitely coming back here during the peak of fall colors next month.

Panorama looking southeast:

Looking northwest (East River Mountain on the WV border is in the background):

Big Walker lookout is located on US 52 between Wytheville and Bland, VA. It costs five bucks to climb the tower, which is reasonable for the experience.
