Kentucky Color: Clinton and Wayne Co., KY hills
From Mark Parrish's yard, one can see Burchett Mountain in Clinton Co., KY, and mountains in Wayne Co., KY.
The next earlier Kentucky Color is Frost Flowers seen at Chowning Farm Amandaville, Cumberland Co., KY
By Billy Joe Fudge, President
Homeplace on Green River, 6035 New Columbia RD, Campbellsville, KY
In an earlier photo Kentucky Color: Smokey Mountains North we looked East from the intersection of KY 768/Sparksville RD, (Harvey's Ridge Road) and KY 61 to see the Green River Knob, elevation 1789 feet, over near the Casey, Russell, and Pulaski County Lines.
The view in the accompanying photograph is from Mark Parrish's yard, elevation 1095 feet, just a half mile out Harvey's Ridge Road from KY 61. In the right foreground is the thin green of Virginia Scrub Pine. To the left and back in the woods is the darker, dense green of Eastern Red Cedar.
Looking up on the horizon just to the right of center is a pointed peak which is Burchett Mountain (elevation 1525 feet) in Clinton County. Just behind Burchett Mountain about 2 miles on to the South South East is Albany. Of course the Tennessee, Kentucky State Line is only about 5 or 6 miles beyond.
From this vantage point we are looking down Rock Lick Creek across the Jay Wheeler Farm and then the Dearing Fletcher Place where Rock Lick runs into Harrods Fork of Crocus Creek. The line of sight then crosses Chestnut Flat Ridge, Crocus Creek just above Amandaville, Irish and Lawson Bottoms on the Cumberland River, and Hwy. 90 just South of Seventy Six Falls at the head of Indian Creek on Lake Cumberland.
Burchett Mountain is flanked to the East on the left by Sewell and Poplar Mountains (elevation near 1800 feet in places).
On to the left of Sewell and Poplar Mountains are Taylor and Edwards Mountains (elevation around 1600 and 1700 respectively) just South of Monticello in Wayne County.
