After I posted last night I got more pictures of the area. Elkhorn Creek winds around the park.
Some more views of the park along the creek.
Swimming pool, which will be open around Memorial Day.
It was raining most of the morning but we decided to go to the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Distillery. We learned a lot about how bourbon is made.
This is the cabinet with a display of different bourbons made by Buffalo Trace:
The special high priced Blanton's Single Barrel Bourbon Whiskey has a horse on the top of the bottles. Each of eight horses represents a position in the Kentucky Derby, from the start all the way to the finish. All eight horses are displayed on this board.
The bottles are filled, topped and labeled by hand by about 12 employees.
The oldest building holds 1900 barrels of bourbon for up to 23 years before bottling.
Another older building where barrels age. Most of these buildings date from the late 1800's.
Then the tasting.
Thank you to all the new readers of the blog. It's great hearing from you. Tomorrow we're on the last leg of our trip to see the grandkids.
