This time we used http://www.coveredbridgemap.com and once we figured out how to use it with Mr. G's HTC's GPS, we drove for 4 days over a big part of Indiana during 100 degree weather (weather channel fibbed and said it would be 85-90°.)
We started our adventure in Parke County Indiana where they take the claim of Covered Bridge Capital of the World & to have 31 bridges.
Above you see Bridges 1, 2, & 3. Have you got any idea how many bridges we saw in 4 days? don't know yet. I haven't counted my pictures.
Below- Imagine our surprise when we crossed over this tree lined creek and popped out of this bridge to find a sunflower patch!
For bridge 5, we had a nice place to pull over and got to analyze the bridge more. Here is the anatomy of a covered bridge. Only a couple of bridges were different from this construction.
