Well, we have certainly been out and about with travel this season! We had a nice, quiet getaway (just the 2, well, 3 of us!) in Kentucky at the cusp of autumn. Trees were just starting to change color, and the air was just beginning to turn crisp. It was our first time at Mammoth Cave, and it quickly became one of our favorite campsites! We will definitely return, canoe in tow.
Mammoth Cave is a mere 2 hours from Nashville, and home to the world's longest known cave system! They lead a variety of cave tours (next time we are definitely doing the lantern tour!), which we found to be very educational and adventurous. The following day, we took a little ferry to another area full of wonderful hiking paths. Our 4 mile hike turned into more than 3 hours of hiking, which normally I love but found to be quite exhausting! On the quiet paths, we ran into about as many horses as people, which was lovely.
We love any opportunity to be removed from responsibilities, phones, work, and social media. This was just that, and gave us plenty of quiet time to sit, dream, and just be! Oh, and some time to work on my first project for dearling's nursery. What do you think?!
