Spring Break 2016 - Road Trip KY

Hey everyone, my name is Michael Cheser. I am an EKI Ambassador, WKU Film student, and I'm on Spring Break this week! While most college kids want to head south to the coast ,  Kelsey Morris, my girlfriend and I decided to an Explore Kentucky Fueled week; albeit a cheaper and more relaxing route. We decided to do a road across the Commonwealth.  We started our night off with a stay at the DuPont Lodge at Cumberland Falls State Park Resort courtesy of Kentucky State Parks  and left this morning heading towards the Red River Gorge.

 When we get there we will be scouting out a campsite at Half Moon Rock and then be heading out to fly fish some brown trout at Chimney Top Creek. From that creek we are going to head down to Swift Camp Creek and give the browns and rainbows a shot.

We will be in the gorge until Wednesday night when we will be heading back to Bowling Green and then turn back around and head out to Pine Mountain for a guided hike  lead by our director, Gerry James and Preston Lacy of the Kentucky Natural Land Trust.
