There are six covered bridges in Madison County, three of which were used in the making of the 1994 film Bridges of Madison County after the short novel of the same name by Robert Waller. I saw four of them. As for the other two, one was an iffy prospect for the Little House on the Highway and the other way off to the west – not the direction we were heading.
I was going to try to find Francesca’s farm house and see if she wanted to run away with me. Then I met up with a couple from Denver at one of bridges. They had a better tourist map than I which had Francesca’s farm marked on it but as they informed me - the house is no longer there. Oh just as well. Clint Eastwood I am not. More like Pee Wee Herman.
Well Dotty, I gotta be moving on down that long lonesome highway.
Today we move on into Missouri.
