I can't honestly say it's my favorite rock, but there's so much and so varied. The sheer size of a single wall alone takes your breath away. I'm not a huge fan of the crowds, which we hear is actually on the light side this year--we're out for 7 hours and sometimes only get in 3-4 routes. We never visited a wall twice, instead opting for quantity and novelty. But half of what I really love is just being out, seeing friends, and meeting new people. The Red is gorgeous and type of forest that I absolutely love, more than the Sierras.

The Woodford and Buffalo Trace distillery tours were both great and very different. Woodford is the only label distilled there, and pride themselves on the family and local atmosphere. Buffalo Trace has a ton of labels with huge range in quality and price. We got right up and personal with the Blanton's bottling line. Highly recommend Bourbon on Main in Frankfurt as a post-distillery fill-up.
