Frankfort, Kentucky

We arrived in Kentucky on Friday afternoon. The day started out foggy as we went through the hills of West Virginia, but it was beautiful as we arrived in Kentucky. We went to the Capitol building first thing Saturday morning, after driving by a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. We have learned things don’t always go as planned. Well this was one of those times. The building was not open even though our tour book said it would be, but it was a gorgeous day and the magnolias in front of the Capitol were in full bloom so it was hard to complain. We had so much fun at the park and the Kentucky Wild Life Education Center. We saw a black bear and an eagle, both of which we have been studying about as well as some deer and bison. We discussed it and decided it was important we saw the inside of the Capitol so we changed our plans to stay in Frankfort until Monday. We spent the day Sunday worshiping, grocery shopping, hiking and geocashing. Bright and early This morning we toured the inside of the Capitol. It was breathtaking. The lighted dome changed colors and the use of marble was extraordinary. The public spaces had French architectural influences, but the House and Senate were very plain compared to the others we have seen. After visiting the Capitol we packed up and drove to Park City, KY. Tomorrow we will be visiting Mammoth Cave.
