The weather is perfect in Shelby County, Kentucky. It’s a balmy 70 degrees and sunny, the sky dotted with fluffy clouds. According to the locals, this is unusual for spring in the South, but I’m soaking up every minute of it. Located about 30 minutes from Louisville and an hour from Lexington, Shelby County is perfectly situated between these two hot spots, and, best of all, it’s right on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
