The Rest of the Story (near Mammoth Cave)


Fort Williams, Glasgow, KY on July 1, 2016

We are loving our rural road adventures in Kentucky – once we learned to read the “signs” better.

But we did find two and now we’re staying NEAR the parks

Um, not sure I’d like that much more than looking at cars. We discovered an outdoor venue to explore (more to my liking), the South Union Shaker Village not far from Bowling Green (read here if you missed our last post) and now we’ll finish the rest of the story….
