The Beautiful Scenery Of The Kentucky River Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The green banks and still waters of the Kentucky River can be seen on this attractive acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. The River takes the form of three forks as it begins in the mountains. The forks join at Beattyville and form the main stem of the river which meanders through woods and fields as it flows into its final destination of the Ohio River at Carrollton. The Kentucky River is important as a supply of water for the state of Kentucky. Over seven hundred thousand people, across ten towns and cities, rely on water from the river.
The Rivers Of Kentucky
There are numerous rivers in the state of Kentucky adding to the beauty of its countryside. The Green River is three hundred miles long and is a tributary of the Ohio River. It takes its name from the obvious green colour of its water. The Green River flows through the Mammoth Cave National Park. One of the main tributaries of the Green River is the Barren River which rises in Monroe County and joins the Green River in Warren County. The Ohio River marks out the northern border of Kentucky with neighbouring Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The river generally has a gentle and smooth flow along its length with the one exception being the limestone rapids at Louisville, Kentucky. The Salt River is another body of water which flows into the Ohio River. The river starts at Danville and ends when it reaches the Ohio River close to West Point. The Salt River is known for being home to several rare species of animals and plants. The waters of Kentucky are varied and beautiful as can be seen from the picture of The Kentucky River on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
