Fall is my favorite time of the year, but, in this part of Kentucky, we have to wait a little longer than our friends to the north of us for the fall colors.

So, when I say, "All aboard Kentucky's fall colors express," I expect a wait of about two months from right now.

We hit our peak in late October/early November.

Of course, in other parts of the state, it might be a little different.

But now you have something to look forward to (always a good thing) if you plan on boarding the Fall Colors Express.

It's in Stearns, Kentucky and it's called the Big South Fork Scenic Railway.

The train ride lasts an hour and takes you through the gorgeous Big South Fork region of Kentucky.

There are many different excursion packages, but all promise to deliver the beautiful goods this fall.

As I write this, it feels like it's about 748 degrees outside. (But maybe that's because it was so nice yesterday.)

But my point is, I am ready for fall weather, day in and day out.

And that means I'm ready for any and all activities that put fall front and center.

Are you?
