    X-Country Adventure - Land between the Lakes

    Stop one on my X-country #adventure was the Land between the Lakes (LBL.) This 150,000+ acre recreation area in western Kentucky was absolutely going to be a stop on my adventure. A huge hiker, I knew I was going to love stopping in this national treasure first. I first discovered the Land between the Lakes years ago, as we passed it several times between Missouri and Alabama but never stopped. This time, I was for sure going to stop for sure. #discoveramerica
