Seems “old man” Winter has tucked his bitter head for another year and finally Spring temperatures have brought us our long awaited natural treasures for another season. In the eastern part of our state at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, our moutains seem to be coming alive with color. The eastern red buds and dogwoods are showing their beauty along the lake road, while the cottage road is starting to show signs of many wildflowers blooming. Quaker ladies, Lyre-leaved Sage, Spring Beauty, Cut-leaved toothwort, and Wood Vetch just to name a few. Also, on the Mountain Bike Trails you will see Goldenstar Lilly all along the low lying area. With the spuratic rainfall and nice Spring temperatures, wildflower season looks to be very colorful the remainder of this month and early May.
Be sure to visit the park on Saturday April 19 for our annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Campground. This year we will have 5000 eggs for ages 12 and under. Also, we will be serving Easter Buffet in the dining room at the May Lodge Sunday April 20 from 12 noon till 8pm.
