|What a view!!|

|Lower Falls- right by a sign that says "no fishing from rocks"|
After the falls, we passed through a small town whose name escapes me. The route took us into the roundabout that surrounds the courthouse. We saw a cool old hotel on the backside, so we decided to go all the way around and stop for some pictures.
|We pulled up to this old building for a picture and started a trend. A bunch of other cars followed us|
|Too bad we didn't have Bryson's GTO "Judge" to pose in the picture|
|We thought this was a really cool hotel...|
|until we saw this...|
|Inside the dome- the picture doesn't give the true scale of the place|
|Great people. Thanks again Diane!|

|Here's what the place looked like before the renovation|
The Kentucky Scenic Byway was exactly that and is my favorite type of Power Tour road. It's a two-lane road with lush trees on both sides and lots of curves and hills. Curvy roads in a car that was not designed to carve them is actually loads of fun. It's far more exciting taking a 45 mph curve at 55-60 in the Acadian than the same curve at the same speed in the Corvette. It's not that I wouldn't mind being able to rip down the road in the Vette, but I'd have to go much faster to have the same excitement.

Today's venue was an Airport which they shut down for the day. The biggest problem with that type of venue is that there is no shade. However, our good parking karma held and we found a spot right between the Pilot Transport and Comp Cams display trailers behind the midway. The trucks provided all the shade needed to make it almost comfortable. For the last time, I clocked in at the main stage and collected the final magnets.

After dinner we went back to the convention center across the street and it was madness. Not only is the Power Tour in town, but the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion starts tomorrow and there are tons of cars in town for that. The roadway between our hotel and the convention center became a burnout zone. One guy ran a full-on dragster down the road. Eventually, the Police came in and shut it down.

|That's about $500 worth of tires on the pavement|
