Red River Gorge

When I was a kid my family used to make a lot of trips to Red River Gorge, its has about 100 different arch ways people used to come all over the world just to climb. Theres a trail called Sheltowee that runs underneath the Gorge for hiking. The place is full of natures experience, many types of plants and animals its  also located in Eastern Kentucky. I love hiking, camping and especially climbing up to the top of the Gorge just to read the names and dates people carved in the rock, like they left a little piece of their history there for everyone to see. Reaching the top of Red River Gorge and taking in the vast emptyness helps take away the complexities of life so everything seems so simple.


  1. I have been to Red River Gorge and I, too, appreciate the nature and vastness of the landscape. It can put your life in perspective.

    1. I couldn't agree more. No matter how many problems you have, being there makes them and you seem so small and insignificant in comparison. It's pretty relieving in the grand scheme of things, kind of takes some pressure off.
