US60: Southwestern Kentucky

Our day-long drive across southwestern Kentucky completes our transit of what I would describe as the state's three distinct geographies: Mountains in the east, rolling hills in the middle and wide open flatlands in the southwest. It's hard to describe and even harder to photograph from a moving car.

As a result of the flatter terrain, farm fields out here tend to be much larger than in the rolling hills.

It's harvest season, so there were a few times when we got held up and had to pass some extremely large farm equipment. Besides that, it was a smooth, fast drive.

We are spending the night in Paducah, KY, just a few miles from the Missouri border. We plan to transit most of the Show-Me State tomorrow... Stay tuned!
