Mountain Parkway Hay Barn

Yep, I stopped along the way to take photos of these old barns on my way back to Cincinnati last time I left home.

Liked this photo with the field of Queen Anne's Lace in the front and the one lone flower in the center foreground.

Mountain Parkway - 8 Mile Marker

The photos on this travelogue and the Kentucky home page were taken all in the same spot, right at the mile 8 marker, which was pretty close to where the Mountain Parkway meets I-64 (about 20 minutes from Winchester).

Here's a close-up of a Queen Anne's Lace flower with its tell-tale red dot in the center.

These flower, by the way, are part of the carrot family.


We're in farmland now!

Eastern Kentucky is noted for its lush verdant landscape, perfect for farming and raising cattle.

In case you didn't think the above photo was boring, I've added another just to ensure boredom!!
