The next day we drove to Mammoth Caves along many beautiful country roads. We arrived at the park rather late but were able to get in on a special photography tour which was a great treat. Over 350 miles of these caves have been surveyed and it is estimated that there may be as many as 600 more miles of undiscovered passageways. Our short tour started several miles from the Visitor center and took us down 130 feet to the Frozen Niagara waterfall. We were then allowed to photograph this small section of the caves at our leisure.

On Tuesday we moved to the White Acres Campground near Bardstown which is a great little historic town dating back to 1780s and is the heart of Kentucky's Bourbon Trial. Here is the Bardstown Tourist & Convention Center.

Many of the buildings here are over 150 years old and there has been a drug store on this corner for over 100 of those years.

The next day we drove through Bardstown to Louisville along some very picturesque country roads. Here are some very old hay wagons we saw along the road and an old log cabin that has a very unusual brick entry way. I think the house is still lived in, but this barn has obviously been abandoned for many years.

We thought this very unique storefront might be a african art store, but it turned out to be a bakery where only one of the people inside spoke english.

Here's another old brick church in the area and a stature of Daniel Boone. We spent an hour or so exploring some of the beautiful old homes in Louisville and this is one very interesting example.
