FRANKFORT, Ky. – Stories about adventure opportunities in Kentucky are now available online with a new blog from the state’s Office of Adventure Tourism.

Regional writers will provide material for the “Outdoor Adventure Blog.” Some of the topics already covered include winter hiking, Mammoth Cave, goose hunting, eagle watch weekends at state parks and various travel options in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.

The blog can be viewed at www.getoutKY.com.

“The Outdoor Adventure Blog will give readers the chance to hear about all the wonderful adventure activities available in Kentucky from people who have experienced them firsthand,” said First Lady Jane Beshear. “Even avid outdoor enthusiasts may discover new places to explore by reading this blog.”

The blog currently features eight writers covering four regions: west, east, north central and south central. The eight writers are: Sondra Rankin, a professional tournament angler from Paducah (west); Obbie Todd, an outdoor adventurer and naturalist in Owensboro (west); Nicole Bull, a public affairs specialist at Land Between the Lakes (west); Seth Wheat, a college student who grew up in Pikeville (north central); Dennis Crowley, a hiking activist from Louisville who is a member of the Kentucky Recreational Trails Authority; Cory Ramsey, an outdoorsman who grew up in Hickman and lives in Bowling Green (south central); Steve Ruth, an outdoor enthusiast who grew up in Pike County (east); and Dean Henson, a naturalist at Pine Mountain State Resort Park (east).

These stories and photographs through their exciting personal experience will inspire Kentuckians and out-of-state visitors to get out and explore our beautiful varied landscapes,” said Elaine Wilson, director of the Office of Adventure Tourism in the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet. “Our writers enjoy the outdoors and these stories provide a great way to let others know the types of adventure tourism opportunities we have in Kentucky.”

The blog will be updated each month, Wilson said.

More information about parks, trails, cycling, boating, fishing, horseback riding, climbing, camping, caving, ATVs and more outdoor opportunities in Kentucky is available at:

YATESVILLE -- As warmer weather quickly approaches, a new houseboat was added to the Houseboat Row at the Yatesville Lake State Park Marina.  One of the current customers upgraded to this new boat 'One Particular Harbor' and was launched even with a thin layer of ice on the water.  This 18’ x 88” boat features 3 bedrooms, satellite TVs, hot tub and all the comforts of home. Nothing like “roughing it” on a day at the lake.
