out into the hinterlands

519 miles in the car yesterday, which was pretty much torture for me, although it took me to the wilds of western tennessee and kentucky, which i hadn't seen before --- first stop was ft. donalson natl. military park on the cumberland river, mainly to check out their 1962 visitors center, which every body mostly hates and wishes would go away --- got to elizabethtown, kentucky, at dark and spent most of today at the abraham lincoln birthplace national historic site --- checked out the restoration of pope's memorial building and sinking spring, which is one of my favorite park sites in the region --- the trees are still a sad site from last year's ice storm ---
