Jul 20, 2018 - State Capitol Kentucky

Woke up this morning to thunder, hard rain and no power, but by the time I got out of bed the power was back on. The three of us have massages scheduled this morning and it felt sooooo good!

The Capitol is next on our list with Susan and Julie as my tour guide and what a good job they did. On our tour we met Chris Skates who writes the speeches for the governor.

Slept in a little today then off to tour the Captiol. When we got there they gave us a guided tour.

Aug 25, 2017 - Horse Country

Not too far from the Elkhorn Campground is one of the 13 remaining of nearly 400 covered bridges that once crossed rivers and streams in Kentucky. The Switzer Bridge spans the North Fork of Elkhorn Creek. It was built in 1855 by George Hockensmith. The bridge is closed to traffic and has been tended to by the community. In March 1997 floods swept the bridge off of its foundation. The bridge was salvageable and was restored with the help of state and federal agencies. Its Howe truss structure stands 12 feet high and is 120 feet long. The...

Aug 23, 2017 - Happy Anniversary

We drove almost due north to Kentucky today. We followed US 127 through Tennessee, but it turned out to be a mistake. It was narrow and winding through the hills making for really slow travel. It didn't look that way on Google maps. We stopped for a late lunch at the Alvin C. York State Historic Park in Pall Mall, TN. It's situated along the Wolf River and the park contains the farm and gristmill once owned by decorated World War I soldier Alvin C. York (1887–1964). He lived in the Pall Mall area for most of his life. Along with the grist...

May 9, 2016 - Frankfort, KY

I was very impressed with the beauty of Kentucky. Horse country is absolutely magnificent. The lush green grass, such a deep and saturated color of green, and the beautiful horses. Wow!! This area is home to several of the Kentucky derby winners and the farms that breed and train racing horses. We stayed at the Elkhorn Campground. Good location, but a little pricey for what you get. We ad a pull through with 50 amp and water but no sewage at our site, no problem when you are in a place for two nights, we dumped when we left. Also we were...

Oct 20, 2015 - Tuesday Frankfort KY

Pulled out of Cleveland Tennessee KOA heading for Frankfort Kentucky. Frankfort is the capital of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the seat of Franklin County. Based on population it is the fifth-smallest state capital in the United States and a home rule-class city. The town of Frankfort likely received its name from an event that took place in the 1780s. American Indians attacked a group of early American pioneers from Bryan Station, who were making salt at a ford in the Kentucky River. Pioneer Stephen Frank was killed, and the settlers...

Sep 19, 2014 - On to Kentucky

Departure this morning went smoothly. Dave and Jean took point As we drove back through Lewisburg I noticed a Wal Mart that I didn't see coming in yesterday. There was a fifth wheel parked at the edge of the large parking lot...early shoppers, I thought. Then I noticed the slides were deployed - they had camped there overnight. Why didn't we think of that?!?! The trip today was refreshingly uneventful. I had asked the Beltons if we could stop at Frisch's Big Boy in Winchester, Ky for lunch. We had a very enjoyable lunch break - at least, I...
