Today started off with a light rain which is good for this area.DSCN0452

We trailered the RVs into the National Forrest.  After about an hour of trails we ended up on a big knoll.DSCN0454


Here are the 4X4s about 15 minutes behind us.DSCN0455


Now we are down off the knoll and they are on top.DSCN0457

About an hour later we arrived at Mammoth Caves.  Here we are.DSCN0459

Then the 4X4s arrived and we all ate lunch there.DSCN0467 DSCN0468

Some explored the caves.DSCN0458 DSCN0460 DSCN0465 DSCN0469

Back on the trails.  We came to one intersection and a forest ranger was there.  He gave us the latest scoop on the fire.  We were near a fire fighter camp so we couldn’t go in that direction.DSCN0474

That’s a piece of ash next to this lizard.DSCN0478  

Here’s a beetle trying to make my leg it’s home.



Sue & Jon said the forest trees were very active.  One jumped out and bit their truck.DSCN0480


The wind was very strong back at the campground.  It looks like the fire is gone from this shot.  The wind blew out all of the smoke.DSCN0481

The jeep 4X4 gang had two flats and a scrape. that’s enough of that stuff.

See ya.
