Louisville KY, This is a big fuel refinery.
This big bridge was crossing the OHIO River.
Now this sign speaks for itself.
This old , did I mention OLD cemetery was close to our first camp ground. We accidentally found this old abandoned town of Leavenworth. Only a restaurant, this old general store and a few homes. It is very close to the OHIO River and was flooded out so a bigger better city of Leavenworth exist at higher ground. We sure did enjoy looking at all the goods and antiques in this store.
The Ohio River towards the left!
The Ohio River towards the right!
A town named Santa Claus!
Yep! It's Santa Claus alright!
We stopped at Abraham Lincolns Boyhood home.
When he was only 7 yrs old, in 1816, His family moved from Kentucky to Spencer County, Indiana. There they home steaded on 160 acre claim.
Built a Log home, barn and cleared trees for crop.
His mother died in October of 1818 and is buried in this family cemetery on their land.
There is now a railroad track that goes through the property. Hey, what is that bright light I see way in the distance?
I loved all the split rail fence. We even got to witness some people building more fence.
It is such a pretty sight!
The replica of the family log home and some of the furnishings.
The farm barn as it might have looked.
The big bridge, the boats and barges.
These were all taken through our van window as we were on a very busy interstate and congested traffic. I was very thank full my husband was driving and did a great job too.
It was late and by the time we found the camp sight, it was time to relax a bit and get rested up for another fun day.
This little lake was quite close to the camp sight, early in the morning it was so clear you can hardly tell where the edge of the water is.
This picture is even harder to tell the shore line.
My husband used to swing from these years ago when he was a child. They would pretend they were Tarzan! He didn't want to try it this time though.
We went to this cave.
You can see how big it was. I was in the cave taking the picture out the opening.
It really was quite big.
They say that people used to live in this cave many years ago.
This pretty sight is where the Missouri River used to go. It is also on the ledge of a flint hill. The Indians used to dig this flint to make arrows and other weapons.
We saw these Amish people in a store, I know they do not like their picture taken so I just snapped one far away picture as they were leaving in their Horse drawn buggy. I thought I would bring it closer up so you could see it better.
I guess this guy thought he was our mascot. He hitched a ride for over 300 miles and was just outside my window. Aren't you glad I saved this one till the last?
