Another Beautiful Wildflower Weekend in Kentucky
The fact that she stayed in place, posing, for several minutes (not even flinching when I dropped my camera), reminded me that God is always with me… even when I’m super clumsy.
In addition to this picture, I also think of the gorgeous scenery at Carter Caves. Absolutely stunning.
The following event has passed, but you can find up-to-the-minute Kentucky Events on our Events Page. Also, check out some of the best things to do in Kentucky… most importantly, just get out there and enjoy our beautiful state!
Beautiful Carter Caves State Resort Park will host its Wildflower Pilgrimage Weekend April 17-19, 2015.
I can only imagine the beautiful show Carter Caves (with its blooms of many shapes and colors decorating the forest floor) puts on each Spring!
From the Kentucky State Parks: Guests can experience the beauty of the area during wildflower and wildlife walks, van tours and canoe trips throughout the weekend.
Admission to field trips and workshops is $15 for adults and $10 for children (ages 6-12). Guests will sign up for programs at the park Friday night or Saturday morning. Evening programs will also be scheduled. Registration is required since space is limited.
There will be trips focusing on wildflowers, birds, ferns and tree identification, a canoe trip on Smoky Lake and more. Whether you are an experienced wildflower enthusiast, a beginner bloomer or just someone who enjoys being in the woods, this is the perfect weekend to get outside and experience the natural beauty of spring.
