Veterans Day weekend, we are on our “work Hardening” schedule at SDF-1, and we had a day off. We drove over to the Mammoth Cave National Park.100_3966

Because of the Holiday, the tickets were free ! It is a bit hard to get there, but well worth the effort. You will never be able to see it all in one trip. Bring your Rv and stay in the campground for a week, and you still won’t see it all.

As is our usual practice, we took the back roads and came in through the community of Cub Run and across the Green River on the ferry. The cool small ferry ride was one of the high points of our day. It was after boarding that I picked up the camera and shot this short video from behind the wheel.

Our “back roads agenda” always seems to surprise and amaze us. Here are a few photos that we snapped along the way.


These silent sentinel’s still stand watch over a old home place.


Faded history shinning in the early morning sunshine.


Harvested Tobacco hangs in the drying shed.


The identifying quilt block patch on this Tobacco Barn has a familiar sounding name.


The Park has a fleet of Eco Friendly vehicles to service the visitors needs.

I love barn quilts. Spent 5 days in Iowa looking at barn quilts. In fact, I have a "trailer" quilt on my spare tire cover called "The Four Winds". Am working on a back window design now of my trailer quilt.
