Not Just a Walk in the Woods

I've been hiking before, but not like this. Hi it's Meghan:)

My friend is a avid hiker/climber and he's talked about his adventures. This past weekend I went with him to Red River Gorge. It was fun yet scary.

We hiked for close to 4 hours and climbed to an elevation of 1,700 feet. Oh and we weren't on the main trails! I guess there are side trials that only the experienced hikers know about. We were scaling rocks and squeezing through caves.

I defiantly didn't expect that level of hiking but I loved it and the views were amazing. I can't wait to go back.
But not sure if it'll be anytime soon. By now you've probably heard that a bear attacked a hiker there the same weekend I was walking the trails. Luckily all I saw was a lizard and a squirrel:) Hopefully the catch the bear soon!

(I'm super sweaty in the picture..what a workout!)

Covington Block Party

This Saturday, Covington will be the place to be. Hi it's Meghan:)

RoeblingFest will begin at 11 am and end with fireworks
shortly after nightfall. It's being held at the foot of the suspension bridge to raise money for repairs to the 144 year old landmark. About $300,000 is still needed.

Look for a petting zoo, tricycle and Segway races for adults, a moon-bounce, a corn-hole tourney, a dunking booth, face painting, and a farmer’s market. Entertainment will include several bands, karaoke, and bag pipers.

If your interested in learning....there will be guided tours of the bridge, the Roebling flood wall murals, and the statues along Riverside Drive.
