Warren County Wanderings

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain." - Dolly Parton

We have to admit, the weather hasn't been the greatest. But there's still plenty of fun to be had, whether it's taking your kayak out for a paddle on Merrill Creek Reservoir when the sun does shine, like in this photo from Kent Sweigert, or doing a wine-tasting here in the Warren Hills Viticultural Area when it's not. And there's plenty of live music you can enjoy this weekend, rain or shine, including the return of the annual Blues and Craft Brews festival, or the brand-new Asbury Arts & Music Festival. So let your smile be your umbrella and wear your sunblock when you need to. Happy Wanderings!
