No, I’m not talking about the movie.
We went to see the actual bridges.
There were 19 covered bridges that were built in Madison County.
Only 6 remain.
This is the Hallowell Covered Bridge.
All of them were free to see.
And only about 45 minutes from Des Moines.
This is the Cutler-Donahue Covered Bridge. It’s in a city park.
This is the Cedar Bridge.
It was originally built in 1883, was destroyed by arson in 2002, and rebuilt in 2004.
So it’s technically the youngest bridge.
It’s the only covered bridge that you can drive on.
And we drove over it.
The kids thought I was weird cause I was so excited about it.
This is the Hogback Bridge.
By the time we got to this one, the kids were done with seeing bridges.
But taking pictures of Mommy & Daddy were another matter.
The first one of the Hogback was taken by C.J.
This one was taken by Princess.
I love it!
May God bless your socks off!
