Camping at Kentucky's Red River Gorge

Spent the weekend camping at the Red River Gorge Area in Kentucky's Daniel Boone National Forest.

The weather beat us up a bit. The first day we had temperatures just above freezing and steady (at times heavy) rain for most of the night. The following morning the snow and ice came with temperatures dropping into the 20s and below. Either weather would have been fine by itself, but an extremely wet transition to freezing temperatures made for a bit of discomfort.

The drive back to St. Louis was quite an adventure in itself. Crazy snow and ice storm with heavy winds left the highways difficult to travel. We tallied at least 26 cars off the side of the road... once we started counting.
