Anniversary Vacation- The final chapter

Tim and I did two tours at Mammoth Caves. I told about the historical tour in part 3. The second tour was the new entrance tour. It was a two hour tour and we rode propane powered buses to the entry site. This tour had lower areas than the first tour. On this tour, two different guys that were walking in front of me hit their heads because they didn't duck! I actually liked the historical tour better but this one ended at the frozen niagra. This is an area that looks like a frozen waterfall. It was gorgeous and worth walking all the steps.
Tim and I left Mammoth Caves and headed to Slade,KY where we spent two nights at natural bridge state park. Natural bridge is a gorgeous area and the view from the bridge was voted as the best view in the state of KY. I bet it is really beautiful in the fall. Tim and I walked up to the bridge our first day there. It is less than a mile but is a steep little walk. The next day we took the skylift to the top and did a couple of trails on the top. We walked to lover's leap and another area that I don't remember the name. That evening we played putt-putt at the course in the park and then Tim did a walk back to the lodge while I went to a naturalist presentation. The naturalist told me and the other couple attending that they have flying squirrels at the park and that they visit the feeders at night. Tim and I went to the birdfeeders at then and sure enough there were two flying squirrels in the bird feeder! We took pics of the little guys. The next day we left for Louisa to pick up Aiden from my family and then headed home after the 4th of July. The 4th was great because Aiden got to see the parade and watch fireworks for the first time. The city of Louisa lets off fireworks on top of a hill that overlooks the town. We were able to sit on my sister's front porch and watch them. Aiden was afraid at first but eventually fell in love with them. We left for home the next day. We were gone for sixteen days and they were sixteen wonderful days!
I didn't add any stitching pics to this post but will add some soon. Thanks for reading my ramblings and my next update will have some pics from our family vacation at Key Largo! Happy traveling and stitching to everyone!
