    Daytrip over bridge out of time

    2008-10-08 - Redlick, Mosby Ridge Road, Metalfe Co. KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
    THE HIRAM BELL BRIDGE over the East Fork of the Little Barren River in Metcalfe County is one of the few truss bridges still in use on public highways in this area. It's located on Mosby Ridge Road (or is it called Red Lick Road) between KY 80 and Flat Rock Roads in Metcalfe County, at Red Lick. The floor is rough and the trusses need paint, but it offers a gateway to a spectacularly beautiful road, especially in fall. Dramatic flights of great blue herons can often be viewed looking down from the bridge. For a noontime drive, go west from Columbia through Gradyville, over Nell Hill into Metcalfe County. Mosby Ridge Road is past the marking place Red Lick Community (abandoned general store on left) C.A. Bell mansion on right. The road is a left (south) before one reaches the slew. TaKe Mosby Ridge Road to Flat Rock Road (we used to call it Breeding Road in Metcalfe), then take a left on Flat Rock to return to KY 61 at Breeding, and left on KY 61 at Breeding to return to Columbia, KY. Along the way, there are stores at Gradyville and Breeding offering gas and restrooms. About 35 miles, round trip. You'll need a camera.

    Scenic Adair Co., KY: Bull Run Creek, from DCR Bridge

    2008-10-08 - Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
    The CALL ON FALL: General store experts around the county who have written off fall color appear to be wrong. It may have been the sweet autumn rain we got last night. It may have been righteous living in Columbia. But, for whatever reason, a prayer meeting day know your county better tour has yielded a number of indications that the pessimism was premature. This is a view upstream from the bridge over Bull Run Creek on the Dwight Curry Road, at a point where the stream gentles down and settles into shallow, flat pools with fairly regular ripples. Bright autumn colors are just hinting at more spectacular colors may yet come.

    Scenic Adair Co., KY: Life is Good

    2008-10-08 - Nelson Wallkup Road, Flat Woods, District 4, Adair County, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
    REGARDLESS OF ONE'S STATION, there's plenty to eat here, even if the goat, "Mince Meat," is more equal than the horses, or at least think's it is. It's not unusual to see this dinner scene at Ed & Lynne Darnell's Majestic Acres on Nelson Walkup Road. Whether it is proper for the goat to be there depends. I asked my oldest grandson, when he was four, if the goat should be up there. He thought several minutes about it. "No, Granddad," he said. "He shouldn't be." --Ed Waggener.

    Autumn colors at their best

    2008-10-08 - 110 East Fortune ST, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
