He was a mail man in Rockcastle County, and his grandson told me that the box he is holding was a delivery of baby chickens someone had ordered.

Yes it is a creek. I think some of those areas were so hard to get to that the easiest route was to travel the creek beds.
Baby chickens, hehe. Is the horse standing in a creek? What those mailmen must have gone through back then.

This may have been the road to Crooked Creek. The old road followed the creek, sometimes in the creek bed for a distance.
