First day is a drive to Shawnee National Forest for sight seeing and "roughing it" with nature. Garden of the Gods, Cave-In-Rock state park, the iron furnace, then staying at the Timber Ridge Outpost. The next day is a scenic drive through the Land Between the Lakes for more sight seeing, hiking, and squeeling at the wildlife... then staying at the Lake Barkley State Park Resort... Day three we will wake up and take the long way through some cute little towns via the "Hines scenic byway" to then get to Mammoth Cave... Which we will tour! Then a hop skip and a jump to Louville (depending on time, we may stop at the "bourbon trail".

20 Things you May or May Not Know About ME: 1. I am an American and proud of it, although Canada has been good to me. 2. I wish I were 5 inches shorter - being the tallest hasn't always been fun. 3. I am afraid of heights... actually more than fearful. I am terrified. Just ask my children when we visited Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. Climbing over 1500 stairs gave me a terrible panic attack. 4. I have been learning the art of cake and cookie decorating. Not only do I LOVE it, I am becoming really good at it. 5. Two years ago, I started Menopause and two years later.. I have reached Menopause but have been suffering from severe hot flashes that happen (most days) every 30 minutes. Menopause is stripping away my loving, patient, happy go lucky personality. 6. I have a handful of friends who I love to the moon and back. One of these friends I have had since moving to Chatham. I still have my very first friend since moving to Canada. One of my friends has been doing my hair for years and years. I a ...
White-nose syndrome found in tour routes of Mammoth Cave (MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky., February 24, 2014) White-Nose Syndrome (WNS), a disease that is deadly to bats, has been found to be present along the toured passageways of Mammoth Cave. Park staff discovered WNS in remote sections of Mammoth Cave last year, including colonial hibernacula. WNS was first detected in New York State in 2006 and has killed millions of cave-dwelling bats in eastern North America. As the disease progresses, bats become active during months when they would normally be in hibernation. Mortality rates of bats have reached almost 100 percent in multi-year infected caves. “We have observed some increase in bat activity, which may be due to the illness,” said Superintendent Sarah Craighead. “We have also found several dead bats in the last few weeks.” “It is important to remember that White-Nose Syndrome affects bats, not humans,” added Craighead. “As with all our wildlife, we caution visitors not to approach animals, i ...

For a 4 year old who loves to adventures and to explore he will be on cloud 9. Brian constantly says I wish we had a preschool like that when we were his age. Lol.

Over the years, quite a few pre-Columbian mummies have been found in Kentucky caves, especially Mammoth Cave, Short Cave, and Salts Cave. Most of them are said to be of either unusually large or unusually small stature, and often have red hair. Fawn Hoof- Discovered in Short Cave in 1813, this elegant female mummy was wearing lipstick and was wrapped in deerskins when she was found. She was shuffled around from one group of incompetent scientists to another and fell into horrible disrepair in the process. According to some accounts, at some point after 1876 some geniuses at the Smithsonian Institution decided to dissect the mummy and subsequently discarded most of it. Little Alice- Discovered in 1875 in Salts Cave, she was sometimes displayed by carny promoters as the more popular Fawn Hoof. By the 1950s, the mummy had been so poorly cared for that she was deemed no longer suitable for museum display. Some researchers claim that despite her nomenclature and billing, Little Alice was actually a boy. Lost J ...

The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) provides online access to the Kentucky Work Projects Administration (WPA) collection of photographs, created in the early 1940s to document life in Kentucky.  KDLA digitized over 800 photographs, now available in KDLA’s online access repository, the e-Archives.  Textual descriptions, often written by the photographers themselves, are also included.  The purpose of the WPA photo project was to create illustrations for Writers’ Project publications.

Dear Republicans, thank you for wasting everyone's time. Ima go visit Mammoth Cave now. Kay thanks bye.
Yesterday we went to Indiana Caverns - something Billy wanted to do on his fall break from school. We went to Mammoth cave last year, and I have to say that I enjoyed this much better.

We had a great time and enjoyed each other's company. Billy went mining in the sluice and found some unique gems. All in all a wonderful day.

So let me think about it, if June Ann and I were going to go to Mammoth Cave this past Sat. but didn't because of the shutdown.. then the 100.00 or so we would have spent didn't get spent, so the economy didn't get my 100.00..hmm.. but wait probably instead of going to Mammoth Cave we went to Jackson's Orchard.. so we spent the money there. Even if we did just set at home, if that 100.00 was disposable income we would have gone out to eat, to the movies etc. So just because the money wasn't spent at a government park or a private business nearby doesn't mean the money didn't go into the economy somewhere else. Just because a small café next to "Lincoln" park lost money doesn't mean the money wasn't pu ...
