So beautiful, Rhonda.
Reminds me of my creek in the mountains of Letcher County where I grew up; it ran from the mountain down beside my house and then in front of it. It flowed into a larger stream and became the North Fork of the Kentucky River.
It's beautiful.

I am blessed to have a nice little creek just in front of my house. The boys play in it all summer. I use it to water my animals and my garden.

That's so pretty and I love that rock wall.

Did you feel the earthquake?

Not a quiver. We were working at the barn and heard about it on the radio. How about you?

Too far away here, but it hit in my hometown and my brother says there are lots of cracks in some of the old stone foundations and structures there. Broken windows too. His home wasn't damaged, nor were the homes of his children, but some of those right in the center of downtown were.

Scary to them because it's never happened there before.

Biggest earthquake in recorded history was in the Ohio River valley. Most people think it would be on the west coast. Had the Mississippi river flowing upstream for 6 weeks. That must be so scarey when stuff starts shaking around.

Reelfoot Lake was formed when the Mississippi 'flowed backward' during those earthquakes 1811-12. Reelfoot Lake is about an hour from my house here in Western KY and it's a lovely place; truth is with all those cypress trees and knees, it looks a little like Louisiana.

We are on the Madrid fault here and I've been shaken up a few times since we moved here in '73, but nothing as bad as the year of the backward Mississippi. I think those earthquakes were over a 3 or 4 month period, starting in December and ending in February and are well known historically because it was continuous over those months and because they were around 7 to 7.7 in magnitude. Also because of the Mississippi rocking and rolling.

The quakes that have affected us during the time I've been here haven't reached that scale. We are all pretty much aware of the New Madrid Fault though and insurance rates are a little pricey because of it.

I knew about the lake but did not know it was in Ky. There was a town on the site and the quake dropped the town down and the resulting bowl was fillws with water. Imagine a whole town being swallowed up in one fell swoop. Amazing.

It isn't in KY, it's in Tennessee, northwest tip of Tennessee and I'm on the southwest tip of KY, so it all comes together in the same spot.

Oh how pretty!!! I'm not often up early enough to catch the sunrise anymore, but I sure can see some delicious KY sunsets right here from my computer.

Beautiful, Marti.

Nice shot, Marti! I was thinking that we ought to revive this thread again...I keep forgetting to bring my camera out with me, though.

Getting close to spring now, so let's do it, let's revive this thread.

I took photos of old barns yesterday; it was a gorgeous day here in W KY. Pretty today too, but I was stuck inside all day.

Lovely! I will take some around here. I wish I had a way of knowing how old the barns and other outbuilding are around here. I love local history.

I don't know much about this end of the state either. It would help if I had grown up here, but since I didn't, there isn't much written about it, so I don't know.

But I still know a lot about SE KY and I haven't lived there since 1964.

From today's little excursion just before dark; the last few are of northern areas of Kentucky Lake.

I could not see it from my house because I live between 2 tall mountains so I had to ride down to the river. It put on quite a show.


Do you have these in your part of Kentucky? They grow wild here. Mostly in the creeks and ditches.

The old ditchlilies. Yes, they grow wild here too and especially down in the Land Between the Lakes where all the old homesteads used to be.

They are still my favorites; you do know they are edible, don't you?
