Only once since we began traveling through the eastern mountains on our family vacations have we driven through the eastern Kentucky mountains . The main thing I remember about the trip was how long it took to travel just a short ways on the map. It seemed the roads were more crocked than anything we traveled in North Carolina or Tennessee. And the constant problem of getting sandwiched between trucks hauling either logs or coal only made the road trip seem to take longer. One other thing that really stood out was the way the coal dust covered everything we passed by. It was not the Kentucky I remembered from my childhood trip with my family ion the early ’60’s.
