Scenic Adair County, KY: Seven story cliffside at Inroad

2014-01-20 - Inroad, District 3, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. Everytime I see this cliffside along Powells Creek near where the Old Turners lived, I want think how to photograph it. Yesterday, I just did it. I'm fascinated by the stacking of the trees and the variegated patterns in the alternating dark evergreens and the hardwoods. It's so similar to random patterns skilled masons use laying brick, but more, it reminds one of mountainside stacks of houses on a Mediterranean coastline, in some Eastern Kentucky towns, and especially in parts of Knoxville, Charleston, WV, and San Francisco. This scene can be seen along Melson Ridge Road east of its intersection with KY 704, at Inroad. - Linda
