Photographer's Note

I began the New Year of 2005 in Salt Lick, Kentucky. Salt Lick is a small village of about 300 people and is located in eastern Kentucky, in Bath County. Bath County was named for the medicinal springs once found in the area, and was formed from Montgomery County in 1811. Salt Lick was named for the natural salt springs and salt licks that exist there.

Salt Lick is where I was raised and much of my family is still there. It is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, in the southeast corner of Bath County, and borders the Daniel Boone National Forest. About 18,000 acres of Bath County are located within the Daniel Boone National Forest.

This barn and wagon are like many others in Salt Lick and Bath County. They have seen better days in this farming community. Burley tobacco is the major cash crop of the region and old wagons like this one have hauled many tons of burley from fields to barns.
