Daniel Boone's Cabin in Nicholas County, Kentucky.
The cabin was originally built in 1795.
It was sacred ground to be standing there, touching the wood that he touched.
To see into the past, thinking of his time there, the coffee he drank, the food he cooked, the misty mornings that he stood at the window.
The ghost-bumps were real in my heart, and on my arms.
It was an honor.
At one time Daniel Boone owned 100,000 acres in Nicholas County, KY. He was not the best at details or paperwork, so sadly lost ownership of the land when Kentucky moved to the new system of taxes & record deeds.
In the spring of 1795, Daniel Boone & his wife returned from Virginia, and the cabin was built. He, his wife & 10 children lived in the cabin until 1799 when they moved to Missouri. It is told that they bored out an oak tree and floated down the river to Missouri (Louisiana Territory).
Daniel Boone’s cabin now stands on private property on Hwy 68, 3 miles from the traffic island on Hwys 68 & 36. A gravel road close to the historic marker sign leads to the cabin.

Disconnect & Unplug
I stepped outside one morning lately, took about 15 minutes to simply disconnect and unplug from all things. Listen. Look. I heard about 12 different birds singing, saw many interesting bugs crawling on the ground, watched the sun climb upwards thru the leaves of the trees, felt the lightest whisper of a breeze, saw at least 3 brilliant red cardinals, about 4 golden finches, and the largest butterfly I have seen in ages.
