Took this encounter to different distilleries. A beautiful drive. See some horse farms, rolling hills, and green, lush country.

If you want a nice drive without too much traffic, nice scenery, no billboards, etc., then Blue Grass is perfect! Make sure you have gas in the tank, as filling stations are few!

This is a beautiful highway wandering through the rolling countryside of Kentucky. There were no trucks so traffic moved easily.
