I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
There are certain places in Kentucky that will completely take your breath away. Many of these are known natural wonders, such as Red River Gorge and Mammoth Cave. Some, however, are quieter places that will completely take you by surprise. This is most certainly the case with Balanced Rock Trail. Located in Kentucky’s wondrous Natural Bridge State Park, the hallmark of this hike is the eponymous balanced rock, and there are numerous other formations and geological wonders along the way. But what you’ll see at the end of the trail will render you utterly speechless. There’s a hidden overlook along Balanced Rock Trail, and the views from this spot are incomparable.
