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!
