The Fox River canoe trip was 7 miles (4 hrs) from Mukwonago to Big Bend Wisconsin. The trip was started at the bridge crossing the Fox River on county road ES (National Ave). The take out point was at Big Bend Village Park. There are no dams and we encountered no other hazards. It’s a very windy river that flows through mostly marshy areas, but also farmland, woodland, and occasional houses can be seen. Some of the area is for wildlife preservation. Birds, including Great Blue Heron, Green Heron, a pair of Sandhill Cranes, Kingfishers, Swallows, Martins, Lesser Yellowlegs, Killdeer, Red Winged Black birds, and hawks can be seen. Also encountered were several fish jumping, turtles, a muskrat, and deer.

As I drove by the Kentucky Horse Park, off I75, I decided to stop and see what it was about.  The Kentucky Summer Horse Show was being held at a new Alltech Arena. The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm/theme park and equine competition facility dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse. The park is home to the National Horse Center that comprises more than 30 national and regional equine organizations. A new Outdoor Stadium was just completed and is one of several major components of capital improvement that are allowing the Kentucky Horse Park to attract large horse shows and other events to Kentucky.
