Sycamore Springs: Sage wants dibs - 1st Rockhouse guided tour

The Rockhouse: 'This makes you feel so infinitesimal' one visitor noted
Shuttle Bus to Rockhouse would be cat's jammies.
About: Adair Countian wants route to Rockhouse bottom

By Cynthia Meyer
Commentary from Sycamore Springs, KY

A shuttle service to Creelsboro/Rockhouse Bottom would be the cat's jammies.

No telling how many people have gotten lost trying to follow my directions to the area. Imagine that!

But in all justification, that turn off the highway going down into Rockhouse Bottom is somewhat tricky, and easily missed.

Yes, Guided Tours: That's the answer. Complete with excursions to Wolf Creek Dam, the Fish Hatchery. Lest we forget: the area where the Montpelier Diamond was found. Several noteworthy skirmishes during the Civil War era. There's so much to see!

Once the jitney is up and running with fees firmly in place, please give me a buzz so I can be among the first ones to take advantage of the tour service.

Cynthia Meyer

PS: I remember taking my Aunt Ruthanne to see Rockhouse Bottom several years ago. She looked up in awe of the massive natural stone structure, and said, "This makes you feel so infinitesimal, that we are truly here on this earth for only a blink of an eye." -Cynthia
