A Thing of Beauty, A Bridge Most Needed, and A Means to Survive.

 This beautiful bridge was built during the great depression era accross the Cumberland River connecting Whitley and McCreary counties in Ky.  Until this bridge was built, vehicles had to take a ferry boat to cross the river.  One of my favorite uncles, Finley Jones helped build it.  Times were hard and the government project that funded this bridge put many in the area to work, and put food on their tables.  The bridge adds to the natural beauty of Cumberland Falls State Park. When we go thru this area we are always in awe of God's beauty and His Magesty.  We see His handiwork everywhere we look.  On nights of a full moon, the moonlight shines thru the mist and becomes a moonbow over the falls.
