Covered Bridges

We decided to take a drive in the country today. The temperature is in the mid 70s- definitely Indian summer!- and the sun was shining. It was an easy decision. But where to go? We ended up in the extreme north-eastern corner of the state in Ashtabula county. We toured the back roads and visited four different covered bridges.

Many of the trees are bare of leaves already, but some still are resplendent in color. It was beautiful driving the small roads, seeing Amish returning home from church in their horse and carriages, and hoping for an ice cream stand.

Here we are at the State Road covered bridge over Conneaut Creek. Soon there will be steelhead in this creek- none today. Sam and I looked for them anyhow.
