Went out on a picture taking expedition today (30 August 2002) Tried to find the Shoal Creek Church & Cemetery. I’ve been there before but it was a looooooooooong time ago. Anyway, I told Gene, “I think we’re supposed to turn here.” (Hwy. Z) So he turned. Weeeeeeeeell......we drove around & drove around for maybe 45 minutes on gravel roads that all started looking alike. Finally we turned onto another road & saw tire tracks in the gravel. Gene said, “It looks like someone has been through this way.” I replied, “Maybe it was us!” LOL So we drove around & drove around & drove around some more till we finally came out on Hwy. 19 at Cherryville. By this time we were getting hungry so drove up to Steelville to get some lunch. After that we paid a quick visit to the Steelville Cemetery then came home. Never did find the Shoal Creek Church but got a lot of other good pictures along the way.
