It was such a lovely weekend. The dogs refused to stay inside. So ROADTRIP! :)
This time we traveled to Blue Lick State Park, around 35 minutes from our house.
Here is a little but about the park: Throughout history, the salt springs at Blue Licks State Park have attracted prehistoric animals, Indians and pioneers such as the legendary Daniel Boone. Many 19th-century southerners came to the area seeking the rejuvenation of the therapeutic, bubbling waters. Blue Licks is more widely known, however, as the site of the last Revolutionary War battle in Kentucky. In 1782, Kentuckians engaged Indians and British soldiers near the Licking River. Outnumbered, Kentucky suffered great losses, including one of Boone's sons. Boone's words, "Enough of honour cannot be paid," are inscribed on the monument dedicated to the fallen soldiers in the Battle of Blue Licks.
We hiked for a mile (would have gone longer but it was hot!!), then slept all evening long. Perfect way to spend a sunny, restless day.
