Farm Country

Nor rural sights alone, but rural sounds, exhilarate the spirit, and restore the tone of languid nature. William Cowper

Driving through the western part of Kentucky could be summed up by “hey look more soy beans”, okay so there was also some corn. The landscape was gorgeous farm country. We added Kentucky to our travel plans last minute so I didn’t have time to plan our route and we had to rely on GPS alone. Both locations we went to were out in the middle of nowhere so we mainly traveled small two lane roads. Some roads were windy, some tiny, and some crazy old bridges but we made it. We hit a stretch of road where we didn’t see a gas station for at least 90 miles and got the privilege of passing through Podunk, Kentucky.

My favorite thing is to go somewhere I’ve never been. Diane Arbus

Being so close to Mammoth Cave National Park we decided to take a detour through Kentucky. Seeing that the campground at the park doesn’t have electric we opted for Nolin Lake State Park. We made a great choice, this campground was practically deserted and absolutely stunning. We scored a lakefront spot with no reservation.
