Cub Run, KY

(Click here for more photographs.)

Cub Run is near Nolin River Lake.  We parked at the Wax Recreation Area campground near Cub Run at a nice lake front RV site.

My brother Hew lives near Cub Run.  He has a lake front home there that is nestled among the trees in a very tranquil setting.  We visited with him and took a drive together around to some of the other lake parks and campgrounds:  Nolin Lake State Park, Dog Creek Campground and the Nolin Lake Dam.

Since we were so close, we took the opportunity to drive to Mammoth Cave National Park.  This year marks the 200th year since public tours began at Mammoth Cave.  We were here in 2014 when we took the New Entrance tour.  This time we took the Cleveland Avenue tour and did a little hiking.  We can add this to our 2016 caves and caverns visits.  Of course, Mammoth Cave rules all others with its 435 miles of mapped passages.

Next stop:  Bardstown, KY

Yellowstone National Park

Yes, Yellowstone National Park (pics) is home to Old Faithful, but it is so much more than that.  As most people know, Old Faithful is not the most spectacular or the oldest or the biggest geyser in YNP but it is one of the biggest that is most predictable, erupting approximately every 60 to 90 minutes.  Old Faithful is located in the Upper Geyser Basin which is part of the most active area of the park in terms of thermal features.
