Simpatico: Road Trip - Fort Boonesborough


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Road Trip - Fort Boonesborough

It was such a lovely day we couldn't stay at home so we took a spontaneous trip to a local state park between Lexington and Richmond. Boonesborough was founded by legendary frontiersman Daniel Boone when he worked for Richard Henderson of the Transylvania Company. Boone led a group of settlers through the mountains from Fort Watauga (at present day Elizabethton, Tennessee), carving out the Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap, and established Fort Boonesborough. Boone lived there from 1775 to 1779. Boonesborough was the first chartered town in Kentucky, and one of the first English speaking communities settled west of the Appalachian Mountains.

There was a hiking trail just perfect for correctly sized puppers.... just one mile. But it lead through a stream, through the valley, and by lots of things which smelled incredible.

We couldn't go into the fort as they are communist and do not allow puppers inside... something about it being a working fort and they didn't want the wool scattered everywhere.

Let's just say, even though we didn't see the fort, we had a great time.

**Taking a picture, a GOOD picture, of the three of them is so difficult... but taking a good picture of the three of them on a rock near a stream is almost impossible.
