House on the Rock

I woke up at Camp Falling Rock and enjoyed a nice morning cup of coffee and a small fire.

Around 11:00 a.m. I noticed clouds rolling in so I packed up and was waiting for Luellen to show up and point me in the right direction for the day. As I was packing I was surprised to see my friends Lois and Jeff from Cincinnati drive up followed by my family. What a great surprise. My friends and family had showed up to walk with me today and to sleep out at my next location. I felt so


We enjoyed our 6 mile walk in Fallsbury Township to the Bailey family farm, also known in the area as the “house on the rock.” It rained the last mile or so but soon we were invited to get out of the rain and dry out in large barn. There we met Rollie Bailey and his family. They had graciously prepared a pot of chili and hotdogs for us all to enjoy. The Baileys both had lived in the area their whole life and enjoyed the serenity of raising their children and grandchildren in the area. After the rain stopped we were invited on a tour of the property there which also included a beautiful covered bridge.

After we explored, we set up our tents in one of the fields by the creek and enjoyed fellowship with the Baileys, my family, and my Cincinnati friends until it was time to call it an evening and head for the tents. What a great day and what a great people to share it with.
