Tours to retrace journey of Daniel Boone

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - The Fort Boonesborough Foundation will
offer tours this summer that retrace the steps of explorer Daniel
Boone.

A day trip on Aug. 21 will begin at Fort Boonesborough State
Park in Richmond and travel to Levi Jackson State Park in London.
The bus tour retraces the back roads that Boone took to get to the
fort and includes lunch and a presentation by Scott New, who
portrays Boone.

Two-day tours that include overnight lodging at Pine Mountain
State Resort Park in Pineville are being offered July 10-11 and
Sept. 26-27. Those tours will retrace Boone's steps starting from
Cumberland Gap National Historical Park along the
Kentucky-Tennessee-Virginia border.

The Boonesborough Foundation is a nonprofit organization that
supports Fort Boonesborough State Park.
