Louisville, Kentucky (2011)


Hard to believe it was nearly a year ago that I was in Louisville, Kentucky! A small city with lots of impressive old buildings and museums, plus great food and entertainment. Most of the time I was there the weather was great except for one freezing cold, very wet day that unfortunately coincided with the Thunder Over Louisville air show and fireworks…bad timing but the show still went on (even with some minor flooding of the Ohio River)!
