A back-road in rural Todd County, Kentucky
|Rattlesnake Road, at|
its intersection with
Allegre Road (Hwy. 171)
I decided that I would like to travel Rattlesnake Road when the weather dried up, and I said as much to the visitor. He (or she) replied:
Oh...then just trust me, Rattlesnake Road looks just about like your Flat Rock Road. I mean, you don't have to GO THERE...Rattlesnakes...and all...
My only trip there was in the summer years ago, the creek was incredibly high and there was no safe way to have crossed it. There was a roadway to the water's edge (and through it I presume) and a roadway came out the other side.
You could not have paid me any amount of money to get out of my car. Just the thought of it even today gives me the heebie jeebies!
Those words convinced me that I had to visit Rattlesnake Road and see its creek ford with my own eyes.
