Blazing Trails at Land Between the Lakes

Sunday, Aurora and I set out early in the morning for what was her first trip to Land Between the Lakes.  I grew up around LBL and gave her some of the history of the area as we crisscrossed its roads and trails all day.  The strip of land which is a National Recreational Area sits between Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley and serves as the source for both the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers.  About 50 years ago it also became a sanctuary for the endangered American Bison (Buffalo) and Elk which had both been hunted to the verge of extinction by the turn of the 20th century.  Here are some beautiful pictures we both got throughout the day...
