Quickie Puzzle: Not much of a mystery picture

2016-02-06 - ??? - Photo by Linda Waggener, CM photo.
This is a Quickie Mystery, should be answered by Breakfast O'Clock, and no later than the noon lunch/dinner today. Everybody will recognize one of the most familiar travel marking places, even in the rear-view mirror. But how many know the names of the streets or roads which intersect here, and more importantly, what the roads used to be. Just send your comments using the "Comments" button with the picture. One may think it not important, but this question could be on a future Adair Assimilation Academy final quiz to become a born again, just moved in, in from off, newbie with full rights. You never know. - EW

Scenic Adair Co, KY: Maybe not just like a tree

2016-02-06 - Leatherwood Creek Church Road, between Weed & Nell, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
The African American rooted spiritual may not have had this sentry tree by one of the four bridges, over Leatherwood Creek Church Road in mind in "I Shall Not Be Moved"; but what character it possesses! If one monitored around the clock, they might find it home to varmints of a higher order than the insects eating at its heart and making it dode at the center and hollow from top to bottom. It evokes the poetry of Dylan Thomas and does appear to be going, but not gently, into that good night. Leatherwood Church Road is in Adair County Magisterial District 4, Honorable Perry Reed, Squire, and is 2.56 miles and overs stunning scenery entering either from Chestnut Grove Road and going up hill, or, our favorite, from Weed-Keltner/KY 768 downhill. A trip down Leatherwood Church Road is a rewarding lunch-time-with-a-sandwich & water know-your-county-better trip we'd recommend. - LINDA & ED

Mystery Roadway: Hilltop Drive at foot of hill in Liberty, KY

2016-02-06 - Liberty, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, CM photo.
At the foot of the Hill of the "Steep snowy curvy hill roadway" there is this sign. Higher up the Hill, Google Map and others call it "Hilltop Road." Joe B. McKinley said the Mystery Picture was on the "Old Water Tower Road," Liberty, KY, and that is the name many Liberty residents know it by. A few minutes after his correct answer was received, Shannon Sexton identified the mystery scene as being on "Hilltop Road," Liberty, KY.
