Kentucky State Parks

Kentucky has many fantastic state parks in areas with lakes and rivers and beautiful mountain views. This summer several guests have stayed here at Woodhaven on their way to Lake Cumberland, Shakertown and Cumberland Falls. Cumberland Falls has one of only two moon bows in the world. On a recent visit I took this picture of my grandchildren on a rafting trip to the falls and then down the Cumberland river. Most of the state parks also have horseback riding and swimming pools and great trails for hiking.

Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove Historic

The Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove Historic Home is held each July. It runs for three days with classes and displays of period clothing and books. There are only four similar festivals in the world.
The weather this year was perfect with fluffy clouds and cool temperatures each day.
