Kentucky Color - Nessie in DeSkies Searching for Pi

Click on headline for Kentucky Color essay with photo(s)

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

Recently while Libby and I were reclining in the cloud watching position in our back yard, we were treated to a visit from Nessie.

Nessie was almost certainly drawn up from the deep, black waters of Loch Ness and hopelessly despairing in her search for direction back to her Dear Ol' Scotland.


Many migrating waterfowl have navigated their way North and South for millennia by way of the Pi Confluence of Russell, Sulphur and Bull Run Creeks.

I can only surmise that some flying friend encounter had sent her in search of this "older than time" navigational marker.

It was a joy to see her find Pi and set a heading of 82 degrees directly for Fort Augustus, quickly "disappearing" over the horizon.
