KY Part 5: Lillie's Cub Cabin, Appalachian Country

Ally found this awesome place to stay in the Appalachian foothills...Lillie's Cub Cabin!
This was our home for the end of our week.

 There were eight bunks, plenty of room for all of the kids!~  They were so excited to all share a room together.  It actually made me want to have one big bedroom for them at home.  (I think the TV was kind of a plus, too;)

 Mom and Dad's room on first floor, right next to...
 a nice, big bathroom!
 Back porch.  Even bigger than the front porch!  And kennel if you brought your dog.  (sorry Rudy, but I don't think you'd have stayed calm enough in the mountains)

 After depositing our stuff, off we went on our first hike of the area!
 See, the cabin looks small, but it's really quite big on the inside!
 The rocks were so smooth.  I couldn't help but think of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone hiking through these foothills!

 Sheila and Ken Brown, our hosts, lived right down the hill from our cabin.  They were so so SO nice.  I mean, go-out-of-your-way nice and gave us a bag full of caramel corn for the trip back-nice.  Everyone we met in Kentucky was so friendly and helpful!

 Lots of sumac in those parts.

 The Browns' dog was just as nice as his owners.  He came to see us every now and then:)
 We rarely eat out when we're on vacations, but this time we made an exception because we heard they were world-famous for mountain climbers from all over the place...and they had gluten-free pizza for Ally!  Miguel's was just a few minutes' drive from the cabin.
 Wynne is giving this place a thumbs-up for their short bathroom doors & low ceilings...just her heighth! (notice the climbing gear)
 Just one quick snapshot of the foothills we stayed in..
 ...and back to our place to enjoy the pizza! oh, and Kentucky creme soda!

 We must always have a campfire :)
 S'mores, storytelling, and time to go to bed - big hiking day ahead of us!

In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.  The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.--Psalm 95:4-5
