Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area

The Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers were dammed to create the Kentucky and Barkley Lakes. The strip of land between the lakes was designated by JFK in 1963 as a national recreation area,  with the intent that the LBL would demonstrate how to improve recreation, environmental education, resource management, and restoration. 

We saw bison and turkeys along with beautiful views of pastures and water. Sorry no photos; we were moving too fast.

Note: At the Visitor Center, I picked up a road map of Kentucky--to hedge my bets against future off-route miles.
