About

I live in Lewis County, Kentucky and one of our greatest assets is a creek named Kinniconick Creek. The creek originates southwest of Petersville before curving its way 99 miles across the county to its confluence with the Ohio River in Garrison. The miles are filled with fishing, waterfalls, swimming holes, rock formations and more. As far as I know, there as never been a extensive book with photos covering this amazing natural resource that we are lucky enough to call our own!

I have the equipment (the computer, software) and the expertise to put such a book together and I am excited about this possibility. 

I plan to gather more research about the beginning and the end; attain land owners permission when needed; include as much as possible about the creek in regards to the name and its origin and take advantage of the seasons. Since I manage my own business also, I am expecting this project to take from 6 months to a year.

I am hoping the final product will lead to an awareness about this local attraction. There has been a lot of talk about kayaking/canoe shops, camping features and other possible ways of increasing tourism. We don't have a great deal of industry in our area but we do have the water and the hills- which in my opinion, make us quite spectacular!

Risks and challenges

I have already estimated the costs of the books.
The printing costs will take over half of the estimated budget.
The rest of the money will be used for my time in research, photos and laying out the book.
I can do all the work myself other than the actual printing. I don't see any reason this project cannot be completed.
