This week we started at Carter Caves State Park, just past the entrance. Locals know the spot, with the giant rock with the tree growing on it. A gorgeous white dogwood tree is in full bloom next to the big rock.The stream meanders along the side of the road.
After crossing the river there is a big turn with the limestone cliff jutting out over the roadway. Next comes a little farm with a red barn decorated with a quilt square.
Two good ole’ trucks keeping each other company at the Kentucky Museum, a few more country barns, Fort Falls flowing out over a rock ledge, a converted schoolhouse and two western-looking old buildings finish up the drive.
I hope these stories inspire you to get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery that our little piece of Kentucky has to offer!
