After visiting the Lincoln Birthplace NHP, we drove 10 miles to see where Lincoln actually remembered growing up and that was on their Knob Hill farm:
|Lincoln family bible|
|Inside the monument is an actual cabin probably just like Lincoln's that was in the area of the farm only built sometime later|
|Sinking Spring, how the Lincoln family got their water and the farm its name|
In the nearby town of
Hodgenville had a town square with
a statue of Lincoln as in Washington DC and one of him as a child
facing each other
maybe my best pic
of a bluebird!
Our last big adventure in Kentucky was Mammoth Cave National Park. Pretty cool because for starters we had to cross the Green River by ferry just to get to Mammoth Cave!
There are many tours offered in this cave as it is the largest cave system in the world. At this time over 400 miles have been surveyed and geologists believe there could be 600 miles of undiscovered passageways! We decided on the longest tour, a 4 hour tour. We walked 4 miles under ground! Wow! Most of it was like walking through a man made tunnel, it was crazy!
|we could see a quarter of a mile straight down this passage!|
