I have covered Pilot Knob in a previous blog post. You can read that here. The landmark plays an important role in my book Swift. I made a recent visit back to that great spot recently just for the enjoyment of a good, brisk hike and to view the vast bluegrass area west of the mountain.

|Rock shelter at Pilot Knob|
I've been asked if there is actually a rock shelter at Pilot Knob. There is indeed as described. There are names carved under the rock shelter and some quite old dating back to pioneer times. There is no map carved into the rocks, nor turkey tracks on top of the outcrop. No silver arrowheads or dead bodies! Yes, I said dead bodies. Want to know more? Well, if you did not arrive at this blog site from my web site, please jump on over there and read a couple of chapters from my book. You can even order your own copy from the site. Check it out.
This blog site is updated every two weeks, usually on Monday's. Not every post is directly about the book or Swift either for those of you who just do not care about history. Some posts are simply about some really cool (in my opinion) places around the state. The next post promises to be just that some really unique place.
