Grand Rivers, KY
My one stop in Kentucky was Land Between the Lakes which sits in the southwest corner of the state and extends into Tennessee. In 1963, President Kennedy designated it a national recreation area which displaced about 3,000 people though both lakes had been formed much earlier by the Tennessee Valley Authority.
I enjoyed biking and trail hiking less than half of the area during my three days. This is definitely a shared use space to bike, hike, fish, boat, hunt, etc. It was a great time of the year to be here as I imagine summer time must be packed with people in the region.
After 6 weeks of living in a community of hundreds of people, I was ready to return to my tent in the woods and wake up with the birds. That said, the cold weather hit on my second night but that's a tale that continues into my time in Tennessee. More coming soon!

Sue ... that is a very good question! I've really been planning life in short bursts this year so I don't have an answer at this point! Heading to South Carolina in the morning & will be in place there for a bit pondering holiday travel (how/when?) and what 2016 may look like! Stay tuned & if I hit Maryland, we will connect! j.

MBR -- so glad you're following! Was thinking of you a few days ago as a ranger in the Smoky Mountains was talking about the azaleas there in the spring! Sent you an email; let's be in touch soon! J.

Great photos as usual. Loved the sunset. Wondering, was the outhouse also for sale?

Good question but that beautiful hall tree storage bench was just $295!
