I was really excited when Smiley Pete Publishing contacted me about this story. Burgess Carey owns this land along Boone Creek and is working on turning the area into a eco-tourism spot with mountain biking trails, hiking trails, and a zip line canopy tour. You can read the article in Business Lexington. It’s a pretty ambitious project that has been met with a lot of criticism, but I feel like this would be a great thing for central Kentucky. You should check out Boone Creek’s Facebook page – make sure to check out the pods where you can sleep in the treetops! Seems so neat – as long as you’re not afraid of heights (or that your pod can move and sway in the breeze.) I would love it! I put a lot of faith in engineers. 🙂
Anyway, the property is amazing – and so diverse. Burgess took Erik (the writer of the story) and me on a two-hour hike around the property. I wish that I started every morning with a long hike – I felt great after!
Bones and things found on the property.
