Kentucky 02

Pictures on this page are from a 5400 mile road trip taken by Arnett (Mom) and Gary Sanchez in early October 2002 to visit Mom's friends Donna and Joanne in Ames, Iowa and the Gary's birth Father, James Tewmey, and family in and around Harrodsburg, Kentucky. We went to the Black Hills to see the Crazy Horse Monument and the Mount Rushmore National Memorial on the way out and also stopped near Nashville, Tennessee to visit Gary's brother Jim Tewmey on the way back.

Lauren, upstaging the breathtaking beauty of the Osage Orange Tree at Old Fort Harrod State Park, one of the most unique trees in the nation, this specimen is a must-see. This tree is taller and broader that the national champion, but remains the unofficial national champion because of its split trunk. Circa late 18th century.

The poor old Osage Orange Tree at Old Fort Harrod State Park, is out classed again by the beautiful Ashley
