Urban Easter Hike

Hope you all had a lovely Easter. It was a beautiful spring day here so of course we decided to go on a little hike. Not wanting to venture too far from home we decided to try some of the trails at one of our local city parks. Cherokee Park is a very large very popular, urban park. I call it urban, because honestly it's a busy place. If you are looking of peace and quiet, this is probably not for you. Even out in the "woods" you can still hear traffic noise as well as the occasional airplane overhead. If you look closely at one of the pictures above you can see the exit sign for interstate 64. All that being said, this park is less than 10 minutes from our house. not a lot of gas was wasted getting there and we were still able to enjoy many colorful nature sights. Next weekend is the Great Hot Air Balloon Race, one of the best Kentucky Derby Festival events as far as I'm concerned. Weather permitting we will be up extra early to watch the start of the race before we walk at the zoo. Can't wait!
