Land Between The Lakes

Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area is 170,000 acres of land located between Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, crossing the Kentucky and Tennessee state line.  The area is completely undeveloped and there is not a single commercial establishment anywhere within the boundary of the area.  When you live in a large metropolitan city it is such a treat to be away from traffic, businesses, signs, billboards, interstates, people, etc.  LBL also has a large population of Elk and Bison that can be seen from "The Trace".  The Trace, not to be confused with the Natchez Trace Parkway, is a state highway that runs through the area.  It is a low-traffic highway and a great place to ride.  The biggest problem are the deer which are everywhere!
