Well I'm back and had a great trip overall!! Thanks for all the good info before I went, it was very helpful. The only two bad things that happened was one, I got sick the day before I left, so that made the first couple of days tough, plus I forgot to bring my car charger for the camera, so I lost my ability on the last day and a half to take more pictures. The great news was I extensively covered Oldham County enough to get a really good feel for the area and came away very impressed! I have to say "that" fantasy town I was looking for still wasn't found, but I was so pleasantly pleased with the "feel" of Oldham County and it's beauty, I'm good with it. I am attaching a couple of those special shots I took for all of you to see the beauty of what I saw! Those of you living there now, already know this. I covered over 550 miles of territory from Lexington-Versailles-Frankfort-Shelbyville-all of Oldham County-bits of eastern Jefferson county-highlands area-all the way down to Elizabethtown, and then back over to Lexington to cover all around that beautiful city too. As much as I witnessed so many of your "Scenic Byway" roads [which by the way are a pain because they never give you any turn-outs in which to pull over to view the beauty!] in all those zones, and gasped at some of the incredible horse ranch properties down and around Lexington, I still come to believe that those tree covered roads which are more prevalent in Oldham County are the most beautiful. Oldham has quite a more established feel to it than Boone County in Northern KY had too. My opinion of course. Hope you like my pictures! I will do a second post to show eight more shots. I think these will help sell Oldham County to those thinking about Eastern Louisville area. Gorgeous. Ciao.

KD, I am glad you put the last sentence in on the second batch. I was just about to ask you where the Oldham pics were because I didn't & still don't recognize any OC landscapes. Thank you however for your wonderful endorsement of Oldham County. I have a non-advertising set of virtual tours of OC churches, schools, parks and scenes if anyone would like.

I would like to say that you are very complimentary, but I think a more accurate appreciation of your descriptions and excitement is that you are wise and factual.

Loooooove the photos! I have a thing for trees. I live in Reston, VA, and we are considered a "Tree City" by the Arbor Day Foundation as is Oldham County. You have a good "eye." Thanks for sharing!

Talking Pictures of Oldham County

Thanks for the kind words about my pictures. Had fun taking them! One mistake I said that all of those 16 were from Oldham County, not quite true, as you can see I threw one in of the Capital in Frankfort. Forgot to mention that. Sorry.

Smile More info regarding location of photo's

Per some direct questions. Here is more detail on my photo locations for those of you who know the area or area looking on a map.

Took about 200+ all starting as soon as I went over the Oldham County Border [even took a shot of the sign as I started my real photo expose!]. Now I haven't re-looked at boundary signs, but I believe all of that area between La Grange into the back of Crestwood is all Oldham County [hope I am correct, don't want to mislead anyone], and that is where I took the bulk of my photo's along with roads and driveways off of your 43. A couple shots may be just before Oldham County like the Sunrise shots since I don't think I had entered Oldham yet at that point. But those Horse shots are your horse properties just before Old Taylor Ridge Road above Goshen, and a lot of those neighborhood shots are also off that same road and housing community along with that road that lines the west side of it that heads out towards a winery hiding out behind the housing area and which seperates the homes from a very large multi-lot farm whose name escapes me. Very beautiful. Only one covered by tree road shot was just over the border into Jefferson county that I had happened to notice while driving by. White picket fence lined both sides of it and the usual beautiful trees created that tunnel effect that I love, if you couldn't tell by all my shots. Took several shots off N. Camden Dr. too. Hope that helps give you direction on my photo's. Ciao.

Smile One more correction

I just noticed that I kept saying Hwy 43, should have been your Hwy 42 corridor from Goshen to Prospect. Also loved that connector I believe was 21 or 22? Lots of beauty hiding in there too! That came into the Crestwood area.

Smile Posted more photo's on www.flickr.com

Just wanted to let you all know I posted more pictures from my trip through Oldham and surrounding areas on Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing (http://www.flickr.com - broken link). Just type in Oldham County, Kentucky and you will see mine and quite a few other cool shots from other camera nuts like me of beautiful Oldham County. My Icon on flickr is the eye of our new puppy and my modus operadum is "Wandering Photo Nut". Ciao.
