As promised, I am showcasing some photos of the Kentucky leg of our recent journey to the rolling hills of the mid-South. We spent several days at Aunt Sue's farm near Bowling Green and used it as a base from which to explore nearby Mammoth Cave National Park as well hit every thrift store in Warren County. I also went on a geological expedition in Green County that resulted in the collection of many fine specimens of crystallized limestone and seabed fossils that were duly handed over to Aunt Sue's grandkids. It's never too soon to turn young minds on to the wonders of science.

All in all a rather peaceful and unaffected corner of America. I could live there. Enjoy the pictures.
