Beautiful Kentucky

After visiting Cumberland Falls, we drove down to Big South Fork
and hiked to Yahoo Falls.

It is billed as the highest waterfall in Kentucky,
but of course, not the falls with the most waterflow.

 Next stop is Shakertown, an old Shaker community.

 Craftmanship is evident everywhere.

 And of course, there was an abundance of Shaker furniture.

 Next we stopped at the Four Roses Distillery, where they make Kentucky's famous bourbon.

 We took a tour of the facility and learned how they make bourbon.
And got to taste the sour mash as well as the finished product.

And, one of my favorite things about Kentucky is seeing the barn quilts on the barns. 
We had a fun getaway!
