Eastern Kentucky can only be described as an outdoor playground. If you are an adrenaline junkie, mountain biking in the national forest, riding ATVs through the woods, or riding a jet ski on Cave Run Lake will satisfy your addiction. Hunting and fishing are superb, and our pristine mountain lake is recognized nationally for Muskie fishing. For the experienced outdoorsman, the Appalachian Trail runs nearby. Rock climbing is available at Red River Gorge. More leisurely trails wind through the Daniel Boone National Forest, and at Carter Caves State Park. Bluegrass music is played live every weekend, and Morgan County’s Sorghum Festival is my favorite among the many county festivals in the fall. In the winter, season tickets are still available for Morehead State University basketball. Much of our entertainment is homegrown, with local musicians and crafts people on display throughout the year. Life is just better in the mountains.
