Red River Gorge
This past week the chiclets and I found ourselves finally on spring break. I know it must seem curious to want days off after having so many free snow days, but this is a different situation entirely. Warm temperatures and a hefty dose of spring fever made for a great week.
While the first part of our week dealt with farm and household duties, the latter included a trip to the Red River Gorge in east, central Kentucky. With its fantastic geological formations, it is a favorite of rock climbers everywhere. Known simply as, "The Red", climbers flock to the area with Miguel's Pizza famously known as a central hang out. And, yes Miguel makes some fabulous pizza.
We chose to do some hiking to get to the Natural Bridge. Why ride the chairlift when you can climb up a steep mountain instead?!
Here you can see our very own Toots in the pink shirt being dwarfed by the bridge. If you are a fan of nature and/or hiking at all, I would suggest a trip. Spectacular scenery abounds in the area. Even Secret Agent Man was dwarfed a bit by the formations. We also hiked a trail to Chimney Top Rock as seen in this photo.
