Chptr 12, Day 60

What a beautiful little college town Berea, KY is. The Boone Tavern (hotel), run by the college, is historic and something really special. The wood furniture in this elegant old hotel was all made by the college students.Their restaurant food is interesting and excellent. The town is known for its arts and crafts (pottery, wood furniture, jewelry, baskets, weaving) and has beautiful and reasonable pieces made by the college students. The foothills of the Daniel Boone forest provide the backdrop for the town. Itís hilly and beautiful. Very nice paved walking paths through the town. One interesting artisan shop after another. I bought myself a clay mug for a momento, and a pair of earrings for an Xmas gift for DIL.

Daniel Boone State Park is scenic and colorful with fall foliage. It is beautiful. Lodge is nice, rustic. View from our room is killer spectacular. The bed is too soft for us; we were both up at 3:30a. The lodge restaurant is the only food service for hours, so essentially the only food game. Food needs lots of work. Bear warnings. It is making DH very uneasy; I am mildly uneasy. Late afternoon DH and I started a .75 mile trek down to the Falls. Terrain was wet and a bit rough; areas became too steep for DH given the shape of his knees. I could hear the Falls, but within .25 mile of it, we decided to turn back, fearing he would not be able to make it safely. Carumba. Today we will try and access the Falls from another trail, hoping it is not as steep. Internet service is extremely slow.

I am getting plenty of exercise this trip. My food choices needs much improvement!

Wishing you a healthy and fit Wednesday, spark friend!
