One Way

The monks at St. Meinrad's Archabbey rest in peace because of His promise.

The Narrow Gate

The monks at St. Meinrad's Archabbey remind us of the importance of leading holy and virtuous lives.

Watching Over His Sheep

Death is not the end but only the beginning. The Benedictine monks at St. Meinrad's Archabbey are a quiet witness of this promise

Autumn Falls, Scott County, KY, Part 5

I bike Scott County roads I've never before biked--Mt. Gilead, Finnel, Barkley, Bailey, Morris Bridge, Gunnell and Hinton Cemetery. Make some doggie friends on Davis Turkey Foot Road near Burgess Smith (see, I don't pepper spray EVERY dog). Develop a slow leak in my front tire near the end of the ride due to a tiny piece of glass. I need to invest in some Kevlar flat-proof tires. This high resolution pic is taken at the Mt. Gilead Methodist Church on Mt. Gilead Road near Finnel Road. I've got my camera set for both low and high resolution pics. Normally, I use low resolution for email and blog work and high resolution for pics I want to print and enlarge. Left click the pic for a big view of the church and sign.

Autumn Falls, Scott County, KY, Part 4

The Luke Road waterfall is so peaceful this early Sunday morn ride before work. Although, I am forced to pepper spray a dog a few minutes before getting to this meandering paradise.

Brrrr! The water is cold. I take off my biking shoes and walk to the other side for a pic of my bike up against the waterfall.

Does the shot work? Or is it all wet? Did I mention that the water is cold?

Autumn Falls, Scott County, KY, Part 3

I see many beautiful fall colors during my ride before work this early Wednesday morn, Oct. 21. Here at Corinth Christian Church at Skinnersburg and Glass roads I snuggle my face and camera into a groundcover of reds and yellows to take a pic of a glorious King of the Road.

I revisit this abandoned Rogers Gap Road home near the railroad tracks before work this early Sunday morn, Oct. 25. This home intrigues me. I can't help it. Maybe it's the 10 AM lighting.

Experimental shot of the waterfalls along Luke Road. It's my attempt to "sheet" (careful now) the flowing water by keeping the shutter open a long time and using a small aperture. Weird, huh? I think I need to play with the ISO. Oh, well...back to the drawing board.

Autumn Falls Along Luke Road, Scott County, KY, Part 2

Here are more pics of the waterfall along Luke Road. I wonder what kind of fish live in these waters? Smallmouth bass maybe? When I was a boy I would catch Smallmouth in north central Michigan's Muskegon River. My maternal grandparents had a cabin on 40 acres of heavily-wooded land along the river. I would catch bass, northern pike, perch and sucker; my grandfather would clean 'em and my grandmother would fry 'em. What a feast! What memories.
