July 19, 2008. While not really a hike, I had to be in Kentucky for a couple of days for personal reasons and decided to see a bit of the history of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln lived as a boy in a cabin that was similar to this, believed to be the home of a family friend who saved little Abraham from drowning in a nearby stream.
Idyllic view of a garden behind the homesite.
Finally, I snapped a few shots of some butterflies - one is a tiger swallowtail - who were more intent on thistle nector than on me being near them:
