Log Rock at Kingdom Come State Park, Kentucky 10/23/13

Log Rock at Kingdom Come State Park
At an elevation of about 2700 feet,   Kingdom Come State Park is Kentucky's highest state park.  We enjoyed our visit ---especially the little hike to Log Rock.   Log Rock is exactly what it says that it is:  It is a big rock which looks like a huge log.  It is a natural sandstone bridge.  Hope you enjoy seeing some of our pictures from that area.




Trail leading to Log Rock





Can you tell that it was COLD that morning????? The wind would cut one in half!!!





The trail led UNDER that big rock.





George, Patti and Neal BELOW Log Rock





The Fall Colors around us were SO pretty.





Neal and Patti walking ON the big rock.





More pretty Fall Colors!





George took this photo of me under Log Rock





Even though it was cold and cloudy,  the Fall Colors in that area were beautiful.





George is now walking on the HUGE rock.





Looking at Log Rock from above it.  Doesn't it look like a great big log????





Can you see Patti and me--out there wandering around?????  Look at that color around us!





Here is one more photo showing how large Log Rock is! 
Hope you enjoyed seeing our pictures from Log Rock.   Kingdom Come (located not too far from Harlan, Kentucky) is a great state park.  I would love to go back there sometime and do more hiking....

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

looks like a beautiful park. That log rock is very impressive. I thought it was a fallen tree

I like the parks name. The shots are real fun. I am impressed you go out in bad weather and explore. I thought I was one of the few. Definitely you have gotten your moneys worth out of the rain suits.

Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

Well dang. The Kentucky part of the trip tomorrow came unglued when my friend's grandbaby was born last night. Now she has to get there and take care of the other kids. They were going to C Section her daughter in law on Friday. Oh well. Another time. Maybe Cincinnati will be beautiful also.

What a beautiful park. I still can't believe how much more color there is in your area than in mine. What an awesome bridge.

Marcia said...

It does look like a log. I thought you were going to say it was petrified wood. Lovely spot or gorgeous photos.

Donna said...

Your photos of the fall colors are gorgeous! And yes, it does look like a big log!

David said...

Betsy, Your fall photos are the best!! Clear and bright...great camera work! That log rock does indeed look like a log. Until you're underneath it, you'd never know differently. Of course it would have had to come from one heck of a big tree! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Jim and Sandie said...

That really does look like a log and not a rock. But you look so cold. I would have given up and gone back to the warm car. I agree with Big Daddy - your pictures are beautiful.

ladyfi said...

Wonderful shots of the orange foliage!

Snapper II said...

I love this post. Beautiful fall colors.

Rose said...

That is a huge 'log!' I had never heard of it...looks like it was a wonderful day to be out and about on your trip.

Carletta said...

Love the log rock! That is so cool.
I really enjoyd seeing the color. We just didn't seem to get to that kind of color here locally. No reds it seems at all. I'm planning a trip for next fall. :)

Small City Scenes said...

That log/rock is quite impressive. And the colors there are so impressive. I too would be snapping pics all over the place. I admire your courage to venture off in the cold biting wind with a smile on your face. Thanks for the adventure. MB

Ms. A said...

I would not have trusted my balance to walk on that rock, but it is amazing! Love the trail photo!

Sandra said...

Hi Betsy!

LovelyG fall colour photos.
What a huge rock!

Arkansas Patti said...

That rock is really impressive though I would have been a bit nervous standing under it. I get the same feeling in tunnels.
The foliage is just beautiful. If it wasn't for the cold, a perfect day.

Shug said...

great goodness....I couldn't tell how big the log rock was until I saw the photos of you all standing on it.
Totally awesome!!! Gorgeous colors all around and a super great place to go for a hike!! BTW....your header photo is absolutely stunning with all the Fall foliage...love it!!
sweet hugs.

Ginny said...

It is really amazing, and is cool to look at from any angle!! Underneath is cool, too! Did you walk on it, or only George? NO net below, only leaves, scary!!! And I DO love those leaves!!!

It had me fooled! That's amazing.

Linda said...

If you didn't tell me that was a rock, I'd swear it was a fallen tree. Amazing! And the fall colors...so beautiful!

diane b said...

The colours are amazing, you were tough to brave that wind and cold. That rock is awesome. Love your header. Autumn is amazing in the Smokies.

Pat Tillett said...

If you told me it was a log, I would have to believe you. Beautiful photos from a beautiful place. Very nice Betsy!

Linda Gross said...

In 2009 we attended a motorcycle rally in Richmond, KY. The rally was named Wolfman's Wandering Rally - The Ride from Here to Kingdom Come. One of the sites that we could have seen was the Kingdom Come State Park. We didn't make it there. That Log Rock would have been a good reason to go to the park!

Harriet said...

Beautiful colors!! Looks like a great place.

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

Beautiful park. I really like the rock. I knew for certain it was a large trunk. I really love the name of the park--Kingdom Come!
