A sunny day in January begged for a long walk, so I went exploring in LaRue County.
LaRue county is famous as Lincoln’s Birthplace. The major town is Hodgenville, which sports a small but pretty downtown. I walked around a bit with dog and camera.
Next stop was the LaRue County Fairgrounds. A derelict, rambling old place that once had a race track and impressive grandstand. The buildings are in ruins now.
Outside Hodgenville there’s a random sign pointing to “Environmental Research Facility.” Turns out it’s a farm with woodland trails that are open to the public – The Pearman Forest. Sure, let’s take a little hike!
I parked in the visitor lot and walked down a long gravel road toward the trailhead. My foot started to hurt. New boots, I figured, and limped along anyway. Gee, that foot really hurts. Maybe I should stop? No, let’s keep hiking…
Two days later, after X-rays and MRI scans, I landed in Das Boot with a foot full of torn ligaments.
Ha! That’ll teach to me take a long walk on a nice day!
Torn ligaments?!? Rest, girl! Gotta get back up soon and show us the world !!
Working on it! 💖
I absolutely LOVE this photo!!!!
No excuses….write like words are going out of style
Out of style is my style!
Oh, no, not the boot. I hope your foot is healing quickly. Love the the perfectly captured images of this cute, small town.
Eww! I hated that boot thing when I broke my foot…and all I did was get up from the sofa! Looks like a really nice little town and you did indeed have a variety of interesting settings to explore. But do have a quick recovery! Looks like you’ll HAVE to write now! 🙂
No excuse not to finish that novel now!
A derelict, rambling FOOT that once had an impressive grand stanCE. Do hope you are heal quickly.
