We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.
We went on a day trip this past Thursday. Everyone was off from work and school.
We went down to Cumberland Gap.
My kids wanted to see Middlesburro the town located in the middle of an ancient meteor crater.
The meteor is responsible for the gap in the mountains too, it changed the direction of the Cumberland River and left a gap in the mountains.
They have also built a tunnel under the mountains now and it was amazing to see that also..
We ate dinner at Ryans in Middlesburo, visited the Cumberland Gap visitor center, enjoyed the fall leaves and the fall weather.
On our return trip we turned off at Pineville to see Clear Creek Baptist College, and traveled a very scenic route to see Henderson Settlement. Henderson Settlement is a large track of land owned by the Methodist Church - including part of the huge Pine Mountian. We crossed over Pine Mountain (they now have a paved road) and traveled another scenic route that runs along side the Cumberland River to Williamsburg.
On our way to Henderson Settlement we ran into one of these Fall Farms. They had pumpkins, tractors, wagons, and a corn maze.
We stopped off and walked the maze. Last Fall I read about these mazes in a magazine while waiting for my son in a orthodonist office, but this fall I actually got to walk one.
I sure hope Wurth Farms includes a maze for the kids because it sure is a lot of fun!!!!!
For those living in Lexington and Richmond, even as far away as Cinncinati I would recommend this trip! It was great fun, and we saw a lot on such a short trip.
I have often wondered about that because; Last year in that magazine I read in the Orthodonist office - that had all the different pictures of different corn mazes (oh they were beautiful) - but they were huge - all out in flat country of Indiana and Illinois. But I thought they might harvest the corn early for the maze and still be able to harvest the stuff left standing later on?
Surely they do because these mazes in the magazine covered 30 - 50 acres- that's a lot of corn..
How about that for a maze. They even had rest stops in them!
