From Georgia to Kentucky

Driving through the Appalachians

Part of the Kentucky Horse Farm - horses in the distance

Our site at Kentucky Horse Farm Campground

View from our back window

We left Cartersville KOA at 8:45 a.m. under sunny skies and 36F (2C). This was the first morning in a long while that I could see my breath when I went outside. There was still quite a bit of traffic on I-75 this morning and a couple of times the road narrowed to one lane but we still arrived at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground at around 3:00 p.m. and were set up complete with both satellite dishes shortly after 5:00 p.m. This time includes check in which wasn’t all that speedy. They did tell us which sites were available and let us go and pick our own so we could get satellite access. Today’s trip was 338.5 miles with part of it going through the Appalachian Mountains

The sites here are large and paved and we even have a nice view out our back window which is something we haven’t had since we were parked on Aransas Bay in Goose Island State Park. It’s a different view, more green grass and trees rather than water but it’s pretty just the same. It was 59F (15C) here when we arrived and with the sun shining it was actually quite pleasant. We’re here for two days. Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy and not very nice but the weather changes so often that who knows what it will actually be like.

Once we got set up we went for a walk. There are a lot of people here from Ontario including our two neighbors who are from St. Mary's.

Gordon wanted to photograph horse farms so I picked this campground as the it is actually part of the Kentucky Horse Park so we’re surrounded by black and white fences so out he went for sunset (which was a bust)!

Now we're only about 2 hours from Lebanon, Ohio so we'll have a short trip on Thursday.
