I was at the life-size Noah's Ark site in Northern Kentucky recently (I went down as soon as I arrived back from Missouri) to do a short promotion video, and here are some photos that were taken while I was there.

More decking and more of the exterior on the section of Ark on the platform

Keep up to date at ArkEncounter.com. The Ark Encounter will likely open late summer 2016.
