Beyond the Gadberry Crest: Tabor Valley

2014-01-26 - Scenic KY 704, Adair Co., KY - Photo by Linda Waggener.
The lowland, Tabor Valley and the view beyond gets a bit busier with time. Whether that is good or bad depends on one's outlook, one would guess. There are more new houses, a few less of the wonderful old ones. It's still primarily farmland, but one wonders for how long. The one constant for those of us who have loved KY 704 since the time of Harry Truman is the undulating ribbon of road with delightful twists and turns and ups and downs engineered by following the paths of least resistance that we hope never changes - just as we hope the red roofed house on the left - the old Forrest Jones place, or the Morrison place or the historic Tabor Church - will always remain, and that we lose no more to fire, as one was in the last year or so. There are other fascinations with the valley, most notably Billy Joe Fudge's focus on it in Kentucky Color - Adair County's Largest Sinkhole, that let us know this is the biggest sinkhole plain in the county. There will be changes, we know, and gains, but with those gains, losses too. That's the steep, steep price we often overpay for "progress." - EW.
