Carter Caves State Resort Park
Carter County, Kentucky
We had a nice break in the weather and was able to take a walk at Carter Caves. The park had an empty feeling to it, one of loneliness or solitude...depending upon one's mood. I once worked for the park system and greatly enjoyed winter days such as this one. We had the lower trail to ourselves but on making the climb beside the cliffs, the sounds of a toddler became more and more present until we finally caught up enough to see a young family with a small child in tow, watching me photograph leaves and things that I found on the ground. Later on we arrived at the spot where they were standing and found this nice pine cone left for us on the mound of dirt.
There is no such thing as coincidence
