Big Bone Island

This is the area where Big Bone Island used to exist. On the left of the viewer is the mouth of Big Bone Creek. The far side of the river is Indiana. The photo is taken in Boone County from Ryle Road. The island was just over the Gallatin County, Ky., line, which runs down the center of the creek. The island was somewhere about the center of the river before the level of the water was raised by the dam.
