Spent most of the day touring the Creation Museum in Petersburg KY. The closest major center is Cincinnati and if you are anywhere close to there I would highly recommend a visit. We spent almost six hours at the museum and could probably have spent longer. Lots to see and the overall quality matches or exceeds the Royal Tyrell in Drumheller AB.
After our time there we drove down to Paris, the one in Kentucky not France! Drove about 20 miles off the interstate and it was worth it just for the drive! Beautiful two lane road with gorgeous homes and ranches on either side. We were expecting lots of white fence but most were either black or dark brown. Several older low stone fences too.
Bought gas for the lowest price so far on the trip... $3.229 a gallon ( 85.4 cents per litre!).

|Ready for the next leg of the journey.|
|Rush hour traffic... just like Calgary's Deerfoot Trail except that it moves!|
|Beautiful Kentucky from the Interstate.|
|Even more beautiful Kentucky back road.|
|Welcome to Paris KY.|
|Doing the dishes.... hotel style.|
Thank you to Gran and Grandad for the ice cream money! We hope it's OK that some of it didn't buy ice cream! Tomorrow brings a fort, a cave, three states, a district and another 800km (500 miles).
