Just guessing and tired of seeing this set for so long but would this by any chance be almost as far as a car can travel in Panther Creek State Park?

Looks like a very cool tag. I'd love to be able to drag the wife along and get it plus check out the museum but that's not gonna happen soon enough. Somebody grab this.

Well heck.



if nobody else wants it I'll have to ride out 160 across Black Mountain. Black Mountain on 160 is the highest spot in Kentucky.

Had a nice ride out to get this tag. I decided for my famous style of adventure I would just set the GPS to shortest route and avoid highways and gravel roads.

My route took me through some tiny towns past old farm houses and of course farms. Some buildings falling down. Very pleasant day to be out.

I ended up on route 160 in Virginia headed over to Kentucky. Lots of nice twists and turns BUT still quite a bit of crushed stone spread all over it. Kinda like riding on ice when it surprises you.

Saw this view along the way.





Shortly after this improvised overlook I entered Kentucky. The sign there informed me I was on Black mountain at the highest point in Kentucky. At least I knew it was going to be downhill from there.



For the younger generation who might not know what coal looks like they left a pile here.



Quite a nice entrance to the mine. Unfortunately on this day it was locked and gated. I centered my camera lens on a hole in the fence for this clear shot inside.



Lots of little information plaques around.



Some folks up North might want this joy to clear their driveways.



My whole trip was only 250 miles or so and I filled up right before I left. I reset my computer's fuel economy and finished up at 54.7 mpg average. That took a little doing for me. It was complicated by a strong headwind on the way home. I watched as it dropped. Something to watch anyway.

Tag shot.


You'll want some hints.

For starters there's this walkway.


If you take it (and you reallllllly should)


Then you see this; A town built in a meteor crater.


That should be enough to find this without too much trouble. If I'm wrong I can supply more information.
