A Travellerspoint blog


Home safe and sound after leaving Michigan 09-28-2020. We didnt travel to any new states but did venture out to new places. Mystic Explorer gets to rest until we leave in September for a 40 day East Coast tour. Thanks for following along. I will post the itinerary for September 2021 thru April 2022 prior to our departure.

Rainy Monday in Kentucky meant Distillery tour @Dueling Grounds Distillery. They have been around since 2014 and their main product is Bourbon. We had a quick history lesson on their start, tour of the production area and ended with a tasting. Nice place to visit if in Franklin. Lunch was at the Brickyard Cafe and was just as good second time around. Daffodils are blooming which makes me smile.
Today started with golf at Kenny Perry course. Very wet after yesterday's rain but was playable. Saw an eagle soaring above on our 1st hole which was the highlight since we say no birdies in our golf game. A day on the course, sunny and 70 is better than being in the cold.

Alabama is named the Land of a Thousand Waterfalls so we decided to go find a few on Saturday. High Falls is on the south side of Guntersville Lake and spans 300 feet across. There were people in play boats at the bottom ready to take on the class 3 and class 5 rapids that await them. They had a bridge that crosses above the falls to get to the other side. The hiking trails were pretty rustic but gave us a few different views of the falls and I was able to explore above the falls. In the summer its a popular area to swim and cliff jump.
The second stop was Griffin Falls a 40 foot waterfall that you have to climb/ scamper over lots of rocks/boulders to get to. though it took me awhile it sure was worth the hike. Since we have been having rain the falls were flowing and with the sun I caught a few rainbows as I shot photos and video. Another beautiful day in Alabama.
