The Ark Encounter
So this summer I had some stuff pop up that wasn’t so very expected. I had originally hoped to go to Colorado and Arkansas to camp but Sweeny sports kept me in town the whole month of June and I had a few procedures that kept me Texas bound. My mom came to Texas to be with me for those so no solo camping trip for me this summer but that didn’t mean no camping at all. It just means my mom got to come along for the trip! Mom was pretty adamant about visiting the Ark Encounter that is in Williamstown Kentucky. So I found a campground in Daniel Boone National Park just about an hour and a half away from moms objective! I’ve decided to focus on the Ark adventure in this post and leave the camping experience for another because there is so much to tell about each event. I expected going to the Ark Encounter would be like an hour-long thing and we would walk through it and be done but I have never been so wrong in my life. We spent almost the entire day there! Luckily I had my blog in mind so I took a pretty good number of pictures to help share the experience with you guys. Here’s my little version of a sneak peek! To start the journey off I need to add a little back information here to make you really understand my first impressions on other wonders I’ve seen. In my few travels to places that are well known and photographed I’m not always impressed. The White House, well it seemed a little small to me. The Chandelier Tree in which you can drive through, well I feel like I’ve almost seen Oak Trees the same size. You had to literally have a car, no SUV or full-size truck, to drive through it because the hole was rather small. And mountains, they are just as cool as the other two but pictures of the whole ranges are just so much better than seeing them in person. This makes me sound like a person who is impossible to please, but it’s not that I don’t think these places are amazing, I just stupidly had higher expectations. This is something that I have recently learned and accepted about myself so I went with my expectations a little more altered. I guess you can say I went to the Ark expecting a little boat. Again, I was completely wrong! When we approached the entrance we saw it far in the distance and it was huge! There was a huge parking lot that had a ticket building and they had buses that had to pick you up and take you out to the actual Ark. Once you got there it was like a little theme park. And the Ark up close was even cooler! I couldn’t wait to get in.
