Floyd County Kentucky Ramblings

A couple of weeks ago I finally went up to Floyd County to see the old Drift Theater for myself.  On the way I saw some other pretty neat stuff.  Some of these pictures are of places or buildings that will be featured in their own entry later on in this blog, some are just random shots.  Floyd County is a very interesting county with a lot of history, a lot of coal mining history to be specific. I hope to explore more there in the near future. In the meantime enjoy & goodnight.
