Big Fork Creek

We can't recall the town without talking about this important little stream that ran through it.  Big Fork Creek is fed by cold mountain springs and will chill you to the bone even in the summertime.  For those that never had air-conditioning, this creek was a real comfort for the long, hot, humid days with its many beautiful swimming holes.  People have happy memories of swimming in the Bessie Hole, the Blue Hole, the Mill Hole and the Bluff Holes.  On my great-grandparent's farm was a small family hole that accommodated grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and all the kids.  The water was always crystal clear and was teaming with fish.  My Grandmother fondly remembers how the bullfrogs sang their bass songs until they were depleted by too much frog gigging.
