Well, as promised yesterday, we decided to explore some of the natural resources around Berea. This area is not flat like Florida but has some pretty steep trails to climb.
We started out at Indian Fort Theater. Nice park area if you can find it. I think in the past two days we have driven past it 5 times. I blame all of this on the Site Transportation and Safety Director, Ray!
It is a 1.1 mile hike to the top. The trail starts out as a paved walkway, fairly level, but soon turns into a steep, root tripping, narrow dirt path. The group made it to the first rest area as shown in the photo below.
On the way back we stopped at the outdoor ampitheater of Indian Fort. When we started our walk the resident tour guide, "Scout" led us up the path and stayed with us the whole time until we returned to the parking area. Here I am with our tour guide Scout on the stage of the Indian Fort Theater.
From this lonesome spot we travelled several miles up the road to the Owsley Fork Reservoir. This reservoir supplies the water needs of the city of Berea. It is a beautiful spot, very serene. The photo below will attest to the beauty.
This turned out to be my lucky day. Ray has a goal to find money in parking lots, etc. as he travels. The goal is at least an equivalent of a penney a day. Upon exiting the car at the reservoir I hit the jackpot! A 2007 Montana quarter was mine for the picking. Looks like I am good towards the goal for several more days!
The afternoon turned hot and we retreated to the AC in the RV.
Tomorrow we may venture out again. This time in search of a waterfall.
