The Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln

A few weeks ago, Mark and I took a road trip to Michigan to visit my family. After traveling through Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Oklahoma, I vote for Southern Kentucky as the most beautiful part of the nine states we traversed.

As with any road trip, you stop at places you never planned to see. The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Site in Hodgenville, Kentucky was one of the places we happened to drive by on our way to Michigan. It was time well spent, thanks to our road trip.
