This chapter describes the landscape as the road makes a topographic transition from the Inner Bluegrass to the Eden Shale Hills. Modern US 68 follows the historic road's track closely through this section. Several historic structures still stand near the road including a 19th century tavern and a log cabin attributed to Daniel Boone. [I think the tavern will forever be a work in glacially slow progress; Chuck resists any modernization]
