In September we hope to be in Kentucky for our family vacation. We usually sing on the street in Lois’ home town of Campton. We always visit Hoe Down Island and Miguel’s Pizza. We would never, never think of visiting the Bluegrass without drinking Ale-8. Usually we drive through the Red River Gorge. I like to get up early when I can and take a hike somewhere in the beauty of the mountains and gorges.
I can’t articulate all the reasons why, but I have always loved to read Wendell Berry. I’m not sure how I overlooked it but in 1991 he wrote a small book on Kentucky’s Red River Gorge. It’s my current pleasure reading.
