I can only imagine how beautiful Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park must be right now, with the gazillions of trees dressed in their Autumn colors.Ã?Â Truth be told, Pennyrile State Park is gorgeous, no matter what time of year it is.
When they’re having a special event, you should (by all means) take advantage of it – the sights are beautiful, the people friendly, and the food very, very good.
