6. Bridge

I have to be honest, I am 3 posts behind and tomorrow is our photo blogger luncheon. Now I find myself in a mad rush to get caught up. This is just the motivation I needed to get myself focused… 🙂  I have the photos taken I just need to make the time to write my posts!

This bridge is in Indiana near one of my childhood homes. I can remember going to the Covered Bridge Festivals as a kid. I can vividly remember when the bridge turned 100 years old in 1973. Wow, I feel old when I start to do that math!

I visited Indiana a few weeks ago and I made sure that I took the time to stop by the bridge to take photos with this blog post in mind.  I was also reminded while taking the photos just how friendly the people are in Indiana. As people approached the bridge they all stopped before entering to make sure they weren’t getting in my shot. One nice man even rolled down his window to see if I needed any help.  Such a nice place to have spent my childhood…

This bridge is located in Spencerville, Indiana. It was built in 1873. It is the only remaining covered bridge in DeKalb County. It was placed on the National Historical Registry in 1981.
