    Mountain Laurel Watch, Corbins Bend RD, April 30, 2009

    2009-05-01 - Adair County Mountain Laurel Trail, Jericho Cliffs, District 6, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
    IN THE PAST, we've seen mountain laurel in full bloom anytime from as early as May 1 to May 19. This year, with clearance of roadside brush by the Adair County Road Department, the shrubs are much easier to see from Corbin's Bend Road on top of the Jericho Cliffs overlooking Green River Lake. Yesterday, Thursday, April 30, 2009, this plant had the most promising buds. Any day now and the mountain laurel should be in full flower. A note on the location: It's dangerous to walk near the edge of the cliff. As surefooted as I am, with the agility of a billy goat and superb military training in the Campbellsville KNG Cannon Battery, found myself within one foot of a sheer 50 foot drop, while observing the fresh crop of wildlife. Heaven only knows what could have happend to a neophyte. -Ed Waggener. Clicking on read more puts takes reader to the "Today, Thurs., April 30, 2009 feature," the day the photo was taken.
