DAY 110-We're on a streak, very uncommon for us on this trip!  Today was a 3-state day (Kentucky, Tenn  essee, and Georgia).  Yesterday was also a 3-state day (Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky).  We've not had a streak going like this in almost 4 months!  We had one day recently that was a 3-state accident (Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia).  We got lost and went to Pennsylvania without planning to.  The only other time we've traveled in 3 states was on the second day (Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi).  Aren't you thrilled?  Warning:  Today's log will be long.  With 3 states and 380 miles, many towns, rivers, parks, lakes, museums were noted.  We started out by being on the road by 7:46 am under a sunny blue sky without clouds.  This time we waited until it was light!  The first thing I saw was a rabbit (cottontail).  That cottontail got the ball rolling.  Then, we saw Kincaid Lake State Park, Kentucky Veterans Cemetery, Williamstown, road construction (of course), hilly landscape, cutouts for highway covered in dried grass, only a few gangly sunflowers on the roadside, agricultural landscape a rarity, a grazing doe,Tuskeegee Memorial Highway, Sadieville, mostly deciduous trees, a few juniper bushes (no buffalo bushes), normal green mile markers on the right side of the road supplemented by blue .2 markers on the left side of the road, a moving train, Georgetown (home of Georgetown College), Bengal's training camp, rocky cutouts, Kentucky Horse Park, Cane Run Creek, Lexington (home of Transylvania University and the University of Kentucky, Tuskeegee Veteran's Memorial Trail, Man O' War Boulevard (named after a horse winning the Triple Crown), the Henry Clay Estate, Acres of Land Winery, Jean Farris Winery, Kentucky River, White Hall State Historic Site, Richmond (home of Eastern Kentucky University), Historic Boone Tavern, Historical Richmond Battlefield, Berea (home of Berea College), Old Town, Renfro Valley, just shy of being mountainous, Kentucky Valley Hall of Fame, Mount Vernon, some cutouts with mesh keeping rocks from falling onto the road, Lake Linville, Livingston, full-fledged mountainous terrain (Daniel Boone National Forest), patch of yellow wildflowers (brown-eyed Susans), scant conifers, Rockcastle River, Roundstone River, Wood Creek Lake, kudzu (sp. ?), cattails, London, Levi Jackson State Park, Sublimity City, Corbin (home of Union College and Eastern Kentucky University at Corbin), Laurel River, more road construction (with no workers), well-marked Interstate and relatively smooth, Cumberland Falls State Park, billboards on hills and far from the road, road construction that was already done (signs not picked up), Williamsburg, road safety a big concern by Kentucky displayed in a number of ways, Cumberland River, University of the Cumberlands, Jellico Mountain (elevation 2,124'), very few cumulous clouds on distant horizon, and Indian Mountain State Park (all in Kentucky).  Another entry for today continues as my travel log is too wordy.
