Day 35 July 14
This morning we drove the 15 minutes back to Mammoth Cave National Park. Mark wanted to do a cave tour. I did not. I mean, I would have, had it not been underground and all. Nope, I was staying above ground!
While Mark went into the dark abyss, I took the dogs for a little hike on a nearby trail. Surprisingly, though this is a national park, they do allow dogs on the hiking trails. Extremely rare, indeed. Unfortunately, it was still pretty warm out, and Dax and Trixie didn’t feel like walking very far, so it was a short little hike. Was still nice though.
After our little hike, Dax and Trixie and I went back to the parking lot where the three of us enjoyed hanging out in the shade of a tree. There was a nice little breeze to keep us cool, and we spent the time napping and taking selfies, while we waited for Mark to return from his cave tour.
Upon Mark’s return, we hit the road again. This time we were headed for Louisville, Kentucky, to visit Mark’s cousin, Susanne. It was a pretty unremarkable drive there, followed by a comfortably cool evening in the drizzling rain, in the driveway at Susanne’s house. This was the first evening in over a week, that we didn’t need the a/c. Thank goodness…it was finally cooling off!
