Coffey Hole , Russell Creek on the Old Columbia/Russell Springs Road. - Willard Jessee
Thanks, Willard Jessee. We'll post your answer with the rest of the answers. If it's the right answer, the Mystery Photo Puzzle Master for this puzzle will give us a ring and immortalize the correct answer with a proclamation right with the picture. The photo looked easy, when we posted it, but we hadn't considered how often a ladder up a tree was a necessity in the Olden Days, when creeks were deeper, when the swimming holes were measured by whether they were "over your head" or not. - EW
