There is not currently a burn ban in any of the Gorge counties, but it may be coming soon if we don't get any rain. Apparently there was a small fire on Auxier Ridge a couple days ago but it was dealt with pretty quickly. Kentucky has 15 counties that are currently under a burn ban. Check the list here to see if any more counties are added in the near future:

Haven't posted in awhile...
Stayed several days in a cabin at the Big South Fork. Lots of hiking and relaxing.

Butterflies on ironweed



Who knew cats can grow in trees  :D



Copperheads at the bottom of stairs



Princess Falls



And as always some nice arches

Bob's Arch



Blackhouse Branch Arch



Triple Tubeway



Great trip except for the 10-15 ground hornet stings on the last hike. Geez, don't know why the hornets attack me and  never bother Tim.  ???

Is there a current burn ban in effect? I tried Daniel Boone site and news sites but just cannot find the alerts for it if it is in effect. Thank you for all your help! :)

The plan is final and all objections have been addressed.
"Therefore, the project can begin implementation at this time."

https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=59892

In a follow up message from NFS:

"...it should be an exciting time for all who love and care for the RRG, as these actions should make some big strides towards sustainable recreation management.

Thereís a lot of management actions in the decision, some of which can be acted upon fairly quickly, and some that, dependent on funding and capacity, may take many years to complete. We have an implementation plan that charts out a geographic strategy with the general approach of attempting to get most of the actions implemented in one of the seven areas we have broken the RRG up into before we move on to the next geographic area. That should help us be able to clearly communicate to visitors when the changes in management and rules have occurred. The first geographic area we will be tackling is along Tunnel Ridge Road, as that area already has many of the big investments, such as restrooms and parking, that need to be made in other locations. We can move quickly in that area and use it as a demonstration on whatís to come for the rest of the Gorge."

Pebble Beach is the correct answer. The name of the formation is Leaning Chimney False Arch. It's worth the short trek from the 9A/9B split if you haven't been up there.

Pebble beach. This seems very unfair
