Driving down Hwy. 355, there is no traffic. One can admire the beautiful color of fall. You can feel almost isolated from the world in this awesome place. Seemingly out of nowhere, cars and trucks are everywhere, huge RV’s have parked and set up camp here along the Kentucky River and then you hear it start. The sorghum engine is making its sweet juice, you have arrived at the Sorghum Fest.
Men are throwing wood in a hole in this big contraption that looks like a train engine. Smoke boils from the top and the wheel starts turning.
