Scenic Marion Co., KY: Swinging Bridge near Casey Co. line

2012-02-26 - Casey near Marion Co., KY - Photo by Linda Waggener.
Somebody please help me with the details: I'm a big picture person, and I loved this scene in Marion County on KY 49, near the Casey County line, near Bradfordsville, KY. I know that much, but not enough details. I was too busy enjoying the day. I always marvel at the foresight of the early builders who built their homes in front of majestic backdrops, like the one in the background, almost as if planned for photographers and sightseers. We took a Casey County Therapy Day Trip yesterday, Saturday, February 25, 2012, to get the otherwise quite agile mountain goat - dimly seen on the left bounding up the shaky stairs for a better view - out of his general malaise complaint that he was "withering too fast," whatever that means. It seemed to work. But what I need help with is detailed information on this bridge, the name of the stream, and possibly more on the beautiful background scene. We took KY 49 north out of Liberty, KY, and found, in a relatively short distance, some absolutely spectacular scenery. If anyone can send more information, using the Comments button with the photo , I'd really appreciate it.Thanks KY 49 resident Lee Murphy for sending this note: "As I resident of Kentucky 49 I am almost certain the swinging bridge in the picture is actually in Marion County. The stream is Big South Fork whose waters from Rush Branch flow into. I am unsure as to the owner of the property on which the bridge is located, but I was thinking the owners were an Evans family. There is not a better highway in Kentucky to drive on than Highway 49. - Lee Murphy
