We had gotten a map of the cemetery while at Ashland, Henry Clay's home, and since I'm a descendant of his, we thought we'd check out his tomb. It was impressive. There is a Basswood tree next to it that is the largest in the U.S. Lots of scenery and history throughout. It's definitely worth the trip. Since it was a hot day, we didn't get out a lot, but it's still nice to drive through. We thought it was pretty cool we seemed to have the place to ourselves, but about an hour later, we found out why. I've had a lot of strange things happen when traveling, but this is the first time I've ever gotten locked in a graveyard! There was a sign at the entrance that said the gates closed at 5:00, but we were already site-seeing when we drove in and were only looking at the map we had (which didn't have that little tidbit of info on it). Anyway, the very nice security guard let us out, and we have a great story to tell!
