I was done with class by noon today, and it being the beautiful day that it was, I decided I would take some time to pole around Lexington a little bit. I finally made it to the beautiful Lexington Cemetery which is the final resting place of Henry Clay
and Adolph Rupp amongst others. From there I headed over to the Gratz Park area where I walked around a neighborhood that faintly reminded me of parts of Old City Philadelphia. I took a look at the Paterson Cabin,
the Hunt-Morgan House and the Carnegie Library. Finally I finally visited Thoroughbred Park
which I ride past daily on my bicycle on the way to work. It's a nice little park and the sculptures there are really amazing! (It's too bad the park is an island surrounded by busy roads.)

Since school started It's been difficult finding the time for adventure (other than the bike ride to school in which I'm almost hit by inattentive motorists daily). With Friday's colloquium session cancelled, I was finally able to get out of Lexington for a little outdoors time. After my science test, I hopped on the ol' Hard Rock and headed home where I packed up and hit the road. I made it to Pickett State Park by 3:00, reserved a campsite, and headed to a spot marked on my map as "Hippy Cave".
