Lake Laurel Power

Lake Laurel
I headed down to Lake Laurel on Friday to bike a bit and turns out it's a pretty beautiful place.

Lake Laurel Trail

The Lake Laurel/Sheltowee Trace mountain biking area is an enjoyable section of single track - not too technical, a bit of flow and no real climbs - at least the section I rode.
From Singletracks: "Park at the Y and head north for some really scenic technical riding (lots of waterfalls) out and back or south and go around the lake" 
Well, I thought I headed north, but apparently I headed south on the out and back, but still had a great ride! There were signs that Cumberland Falls was about 10 miles ahead, but I didn't really have 20 more miles in me by the time I got to that sign. Would love to check it out sometime though!

World Chicken Fest, Pt1

It was the 25th annual World Chicken Fest held in London, KY!
World Chicken Fest
Colonel Harland Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, is one of the most highly recognized figures in the world. Laurel County, Kentucky, located in the heart of the beautiful Daniel Boone National Forest, is proud to be the home of the Colonel’s first and original restaurant established in the 1940’s. Lee Cummings, co-founder of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken, also began his career in 1952 with his uncle, Colonel Sanders, in Laurel County.
Sadly, I didn't get any photos of the world's largest skillet - 300 gallons of cooking oil that can cook 600 quarters of chicken at one time, but maybe next year!

Cumberland Falls holds the famous 'moonbow' but I haven't made it down to see that phenomena yet.
