New Horizons, The Kentucky State Parks! Part 1

Posted in Kentucky, State Parks at 10:50 pm by Thomas

This blog obviously started out almost 16 years ago in support of Kentucky’s hosting of the World Equestrian Games and I have continued to push the idea of Kentucky hosting the games again should they ever be revived as a singular World Championship style event but I think its time to take a different direction, a new horizon you may say. The Kentucky World Equestrian Games in 2010 were an incredible event that I think show cased Kentucky in so many positive ways, but Kentucky has always been an amazing place and I am proud to have called it my home for nearly 40 years and so I am going to take my enthusiasm for Kentucky to hopefully get many of you to say, Ky WE GO as you plan your next adventure.

I am going to start with our Kentucky State Parks which I count as one of those undiscovered Gems that many people outside and are I say inside Kentucky do not know much about. Kentucky has 45 State Parks, which certainly isn’t the most in the U.S., but what we lack in numbers we make up for in family fun and new discoveries as everyone of our parks has something different to offer. One of the cool things about our State Parks goes back to the unique geography and ecology of Kentucky given its location on the North American continent. I am not going to go into great detail in this post on Kentucky’s geological history but it certainly plays a role in many of the great things to see at our State Parks. As for our people, my experience throughout life has been that Kentuckians are by and by a friendly people as are most Americans but you will almost have those bad apples that spoil the bushel, however the long term employees of our State Parks tend to be some of our finer individuals who find working at the parks to be rewarding beyond a simple paycheck.

I am not going to get to long winded (I know some of you are rolling your eyes at me saying that!) with this general opening overview because I want to get back to righting on a much more regular interval even as my life continues to be busy with a project I have been working on for several months that I will hopefully be able to reveal later in September. So stay tuned and for those that have been to our Kentucky State Parks drop me a line here as to your experiences.
