7/20/11 Lincoln's Birthplace

Lincoln Homestead State Park KY

It was a hard day at the office.
This is the land of Lincoln.  The route passed by Abraham Lincoln’s Birth Place which is now a National Historical Site.  I was too early to stop in to see it. The campsite tonight is in the Lincoln Homestead State Park northeast of Bardstown KY.  The shower is in the golf club house a half mile away.  The campsite is a picnic area with a large covered shelter with a lot of tables and a lot of sloping grass for our tents. 
The ride today covered 70 miles from Sonora KY.  Dave says that as long as he is willing to accept being wet, this was a perfect day.  The route was rolling with few granny gear hills.

We see that the whole country is stuck in a heat wave.  We are eager to wave it good bye. It did not cool off all night, and we woke in a sweat.   Pete says we are blessed with free saunas every day.  Oh well.
