Our trip from Huntington, WV to Lexington, KY was 144 uneventful miles and we even managed to get past the low branches on the first six miles without losing our radio antenna. We are staying at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground which is a state park and is a very nice park with large sites, 50 amps, water, and WiFi. They do have four dump stations on the way out. We have clear shot to the satellite and very good Verizon coverage - life is good!!
Tuesday we spent working around the Mothership and getting the laundry done. That only took eight loads! We did find a very nice laundromat which allowed us to make quick work of it.
Wednesday we took Libby and drove the Red River Gorge Scenic Byway. This was a very pleasant drive along winding, narrow roads through this very lush gorge in central Kentucky. We were able to take three short hikes totaling about two miles that took us to two arch formations and then to Chimney Top Rock to view the complete countryside. It took most of the day and was a very enjoyable way to spend it.
Thursday was spent at Kentucky Horse Park where we took a short, horse-drawn trolley ride, saw four of the champions that have now retired here, and watched the Parade of Breeds where they show you some of the different breeds of horses. I never realized there are so many breeds of horses! The park was much the same as we saw five years ago when we visited but still very enjoyable to see these magnificent animals. They really take good care of them here.
Tomorrow we head to Louisville for four nights where we plan on taking a train ride and seeing the Louisville Slugger factory....and whatever else we find to do.
