Farewell, Kentucky!

Before M & L leave for New Jersey, their fox terrier, Remington, finds playmates.

I found this crudely carved gravestone much more appealing than the elaborate ones of today.

Many of Kentucky’s covered bridges were burned down during the Civil War,  tit wasn’t until 1996 that the state began to restore the ones that are remaining.

Kentucky has one of the fastest growing Amish populations currently at 8,000.

Pioneer Weapons Area of Cave Run Lake

Hunters may use compound bows,
traditional archer y equipment, crossbows, and
percussion or flintlock muzzleloaders. In-line
muzzleloaders and scopes are banned. The muzzleloading .
shotgun and pistol may also be used. The flintlock
rifle was used by the pioneer; the percussion cap
by the Civil War soldier. (Hunting With Pioneer Weapons, http://www.fs.fed.us)

Cave Run Lake is situated in the Daniel Boone National Forest. We were tied up to trees in a cove next to the beach area which you can see through the trees.

There are campsites for pup tents up to RVs, but they are situated so that none of the sites are visible from the lake.

Sunset over the marina as we prepare to go home in the morning.

The full moon makes an appearance and someone told me that now is the best time for fishing on the lake.

This is me thanking the lake for such a peaceful week.

  1. Thanks for giving us a glimpse of a nice respite on the lake. My favorite shot is the bridge too–and the sunset, but they are all great. I’ll add KY to my to-do list.
