Cripple Creek. Lots of songs have been written about this old creek, deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Supposedly those muddy waters have healing powers, not that we would know.

Kelsey and I drove alongside it, going towards the headwaters, for about 20 miles. Not once did we see anything even close to public access. I took this picture on some poor farmer's land. It's more impressive in legend.
