Who said that blue, green and white don't go together?

I photographed a spectacular view of the Green River Knob where Casey, Russell, and Pulaski Counties come together, on October 19, 2009, which shows that it does.


The elevation is about 1080 feet where I was standing just East of Highland Raku Studio at the intersection of Hwy 61 and 768. The Green River Knob is over 1500 feet elevation and over 25 miles in the distance.

The view (in the accompanying photo) is looking across the Flatwoods, Gadberry, Northern Russell County, and the Southern tip of Casey County. The Knob is just northwest of Nancy, KY.

A fog bank in the scene was generated by the warmer than air waters of massive Lake Cumberland and then carried north by a gentle breeze.

Thanks, Billy Joe Fudge. Wonderful story, wonderful photo. Comments on the Green River Knob, which can be seen from so many points in Adair County, are welcome. While visible all year long on reasonably clear days, it seems that it is best viewed on clear October days and in April. Also, if anyone knows the answer to the nagging question of the ages: How many counties can one see on a clear day from atop Wheeler Hill? please let us know. -EW

Kentucky Color: Smoky Mountains North



2009-10-20 - Antioch, Top of Wheeler Hill, Intersection of KY 68 and Ky 768, Columbia, KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge. "I thought this was a spectacular view of the Green River Knob, the blue triangle in the very center of the picture, which is itself located where Casey, Russell, and Pulaski Counties come together," writes Billy Joe Fudge. "The elevation is about 1080 feet where I was standing just East of Highland Raku Studio at the intersection of Hwy 61 and 768. The Green River Knob is over 1500 feet elevation and over 25 miles in the distance. The view is looking across the Flatwoods, Gadberry, Northern Russell County, and the Southern tip of Casey County. The Knob is just northwest of Nancy, KY. The fog bank was generated by the warmer than air waters of massive Lake Cumberland and then carried north by a gentle breeze."
