Dogwoods and Bluegrass

After overnighting in Huntington, West Virigina, I arrived Natural Bridge State Park in Kentucky on Tuesday, April 14. I was the first Airstream to roll into the campground. The campground host asked if I was one of “those Airstream people”, and since I was first to arrive was the caravan’s wagon master. There is a branch of Middle Fork Creek running behind my campsite. The trout fishermen were all over the place. Natural Bridge is beautiful and I’ve found more of my wildflower friends.

Aluminum attracts aluminum. By Friday the campground gleamed with Airstream silver and Argosy off-white. The time I spent was the perfect ending to 3 weeks on the road. Leaving a day before the rally was over was tough, but other obligations must override the pull of aluminum.

While traveling south I watched the progress of spring from the Kentucky mountains with the hint of redbud and leafless hardwoods to full blown green and nearly bloomed-out dogwoods in my own drive.

Now the Tradewind is tucked back in its spot at Mom’s house. Looks like the next trip will be the AIRforums Springstream rally in May.
