The Squirrel Hunter and I drove out to Madison County to explore some of the covered bridges.
This is the Cutler-Donahoe Bridge...built in 1870. If you ever saw the movie, "Bridges of Madison County..."
This is the stone bridge where Francesca and Robert enjoy a picnic getaway. See the deer relaxing in the background?
The Roseman Bridge built in 1883, is the bridge Robert Kincaid is trying to find when he calls on Francesca’s farmhouse and where the ashes are scattered.
The bridges are very cool...all made out of wood. You can no longer drive through them but it so easy to imagine the sound of horse hoofs walking across the wooden planks.
Here is the wooden interior.
There were originally 19 covered bridges but only 6 remain today. We only saw 3 of them today...have to leave something to see for next year!
