Bridges



It seems like they have been closed for the season a little bit to long. A quality place to grab a cold one, a bottle of Frostie Root Beer. This is the closest ice cream stand for me, about 20 miles, to grab a cone. In a book I was reading two characters went out for a chocolate dipped cone, and I have wanted one ever since.

This is one of many covered bridges that where used in the movie, "Bridges of Madison County", which was produced here from a book written by Robert Waller. It is a good Clint Eastwood film, and the book a very good read.






This is the bridge across the Middle River

  1. Oh, those frosties look so good; and that dipped ice cream cone is now fixed in my mind. Must have! The covered bridge looks well maintained. Love the shot of color with the spring flowers. Would love to see little heads poking out of the holes in the trees.

  2. I drove across one of those low water bridges to get to a friend's hose in Blanco TX. they had had a lot of rain and the water was moving over it pretty quickly. it was a bit scary.

  3. We had a covered bridge nearby that washed away last fall in a flood. I like the pics of the one you found.

  4. Hi Steve - love the choice of bridges - they do entice us to cross them or go under ... lovely photos too ... Ice-cream cone does not sound good right now - I'm off to put the heating on .. it's a wee chilly! But it's lighter longer and that's brilliant ...

    Cheers and enjoy your changing landscape - Hilary

  5. I do believe the bridge over the Middle River needs a bridge.

  6. I may have already told you this, but we were in Winterset when that movie came out. Happened to get off I-35 to see one of the bridges and let the kids run (driving north from Texas.) Went to town and ate at cafe across from the court house. Photos all over the cafe of the movie making and the movie was showing at the theater across the courtyard. Very fun day.
