Winters in Kentucky

Autumn is probably my second favorite season.  While winter will always hold the number one spot, fall means that the overwhelming heat of summer is finally over and I can start wearing jeans, sweatshirts, and beanies again.  The other great thing about fall is the changing colors.  And since we’re in a new place in a new part of the country and we’re pretty much completely surrounded by forests, I was really looking forward to see what Kentucky would have to offer as far as color changes were concerned.  I was not disappointed.

Anything and everything Native American can be seen at the annual Trail of Tears Pow Wow held in Hopkinsville, Kentucky each year.  This historically important event features tribal dancing, Native American storytelling, arts and crafts, and more. It was held this past weekend and these photos are wonderful.  Just wanted to share with our Kentucky readers.

Drum Circle

Samantha and I had a great time! I love the authentic Native American Indian dance competitions with contestants in full Native American regalia. Anything and everything Native American is there to buy from vendors; dream catchers, jewelry, pottery, smudge sticks, sweet grass, paintings, books, arts and crafts. I got two dream catchers for my grandkids and dancing bells for Samantha. The bells are really cool. I got my usual, sage for smudging and an arrowhead.

The Pow Wow is held every year at the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park in Hopkinsville, KY. This historic park is one of the few documented sites of actual trail and campsites used during the forced removal of the Cherokee people to “Indian Territory”. It was used as an encampment…

A FALL SUNDAY MORNING IN KENTUCKY

Fall in Kentucky is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year.  This is the front yard of a farm in Georgetown, Kentucky.  The trees are so beautiful this time of the year.  There is a quote by Shira Tamir that says, “Anyone that thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.”  I think the leaves are beautiful as they flutter to the ground in the fall.  The colors on a fall day in Kentucky are like looking at a painting.  We Kentuckians are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
