Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park

Today Jimmy & I rode our bikes to Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park looking for fall colors and we found some just as we neared Hyden and Hazard, Kentucky.  Some of the trees had already lost their leaves and other trees were still green, but in certain spots the colors were rainbows of reds, yellows, orange, copper and various shades of green.


Ron came by for a visit this morning and after taking care of some business we all went for brunch at Ron's favorite breakfast restaurant Cracker Barrel.  After brunch Ron went shopping and we came home and then decided to take advantage of this beautiful day.  By that time it was 1 o'clock in the afternoon, so we got a late start and Buckhorn turned out to be much farther away than I thought it would be.  I had no idea that I had to travel all the way to Hazard, Kentucky to find Buckhorn.  We had ridden there many times before with Brian & Reva, but I hadn't paid attention to how we got there.  Now I know a shortcut because I had to resort to taking it on the way home because it was getting late and there was no time to dilly dally along.  It gets mighty cold in those mountains when the sun begins to set, and speaking of sunsets, we saw the prettiest sunset on our way home.  I wanted to stop and take a picture of it but I remembered that everytime I take a picture of a sunset it never does it justice and this sunset was so beautiful that a picture wouldn't of been able to capture all of it's beauty....not with my little pocket camera anyway.

We saw the sunset from our window at the restaurant and I was asked, "Are the sunsets this beautiful in Kentucky?" and I said, "Yes."
Good Morning. I am about to go have breakfast at 0700. Our meeting is at 0900 eastern time.
