OLOU Rough River State Park, KY. A mix of open, mowed parkland, with thick, scrubby woodlands near the lake. Some interesting cliffs and rock formations, but not pleasant due to the vegetation. Wasted 9 to 10 minutes looking for a mis-placed control number 5 amongst rocky, ankle-busting cliffs overgrown with chest high poison ivy and another nasty plant that I call chigger-weed, because I never fail to get a dose of the nasty bloodsuckers when I encounter this plant. (13:30 on a leg that should have taken about 4 minutes). Otherwise, a pretty clean and well-executed run, just slow.
Follow-up. As of afternoon of Oct 4, no chigger bites have appeared. Yay!
