Late Snow of January: What's beyond the Gadberry Crest

2014-01-26 - Gadberry, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. KY 704 reaches for the sky beyond the squiggly "30 MPH" sign at Gadberry. We know what's over the hill, but always wonder what first time, northbound travellers are thinking as they approach the scene beyond Tim and Rhonda Bradshaw's beautiful home on the crest (right). Does the world just drop off? Or is there something magic over the horizon? The crossroads here is where official Gadberry used to be, where there's one of those curious - to a newbie - Adair County Road changes: east is Loy Cemetery Road, west is the north intersection of Johnson School Road, and it's right where Monty Gadberry grew the best strawberries a few decades ago, and where a milliner's shop once stood. And the crest? It was once Butterp'int Ridge, or so Joe Johnson used to tell me. And it a place where a deadly sin, envy, has to be fought hard, thinking about how good those ridge line dwellers have it all the time, being able to just look out the window and see what's over the crest of the hill, you see, in the Paired Photo to follow: Beyond the Gadberry Crest: Tabor Valley - Ed & Linda Waggener
