Rough River State Park, Kentucky  

Saturday morning was hazy and comfortably warm when we met at Newburgh's new lock and dam. 

We were eager to explore a new destination on a route chosen by Scott Klueh. 

We headed east through Reo and Rockport and past the great cooling towers of the Rockport Generating Station.

Then we turned south on 231 and crossed the intriguing William H. Natcher bridge across the Ohio River. When it was completed in 2002, it was the longest cable-supported bridge over an inland waterway in the United States. The two towers are 374 feet tall.

Weeks of spring rains had flooded the bottom land along the Ohio.

Susan captured this cool mirror shot of Bob Myers in his Boxster, followed by Dave Hostetter in his.

Road construction projects are a sure sign that spring is here.

So was the flowering of Redbud and Dogwood trees seen throughout our drive.

Before long, Scott led us into the hilly and twisty part of the route...

... which was just fine with everyone.

Nice drive. Beautiful day.

We found a few places to kick up a little dust.

There were lots of reasons to pay attention,...

... including the inevitable farm machinery,...

... but it's rural America and we love the roads and scenery.

We found the Rough River State Park,...
... and parked, still smiling after our enjoyable drive.

The lodge was inviting and offered a buffet lunch...

... which was generous, tasty, and inexpensive. On this trip were (L-R) Scott Klueh, Linda Barth, Susan Jindrich, Cheryl and Mark Roethemeier, Jeff and Debbie Jackson, Judy Ridings, Dale Fatland, Dave Hostetter, Tom Southwell, and Bob Myers. Not shown because he was taking the picture: Jerry Jindrich.

The Lodge offered a pretty view of the lake.

Judy and Dale found a quiet bench...

... and were joined by a few others willing to walk down the steep hill and back up again.

Eight Porsches made the trip. Members who missed this drive should plan to go next time. Rough River State Park is fairly close. The roads were fun. You missed a good drive.

The trip home was just as pretty as the drive over.
