Kentucky has been my home for 13 years. For me it is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I know this might sound a bit strange considering all the amazing places to visit on our great blue/green planet. But, Kentucky has so many amazing offerings, I have a feeling travelers from around the world would be amazed at the wonders our state holds with its borders.

Recently I saw a post from the Kentucky Tourism Facebook page. This post highlighted Hart County, Kentucky. I immediately wanted to share the photos and information with you, so I contacted Sandra T. Wilson, Executive Director, Horse Cave/Hart County Tourism.

She was thrilled for me to share all of this with you and hope to highlight other counties in the future.
