The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Covered Bridge

Cottonwood, Alabama

Just a covered bridge on someone's private driveway in rural Alabama.  I am winding down to the end of my pictures from our spring tour through the South.  This one is the last from Alabama.

That is a No Trespassing sign on the left, a security camera sign and birdhouse on the right and a locked gate to the rear.  I bet they have a nice place beyond those woods.


  1. Funny to see such a bridge on a place where you don't expect it. I was always wondering why you should give a bridge a roof. Must be something to do with snow and ice I assume.

  2. nice! and i can appreciate their wish for privacy. :)

  3. This is the first time I see a private bridge, but it's a nice one. ;-)

  4. I've always wanted to see covered bridges in real life - especially so after having watched "The bridges of Madison County".

  5. I like those covered bridges, but this is a special one for a private user. Nice view in the green.

  6. I would have to have a closer look John...

  7. My sister loves covered bridges, she always takes pictures of them. This on is cool.

  8. Your travel series has been great. I followed all of it.

  9. Thanks for the tour John. It was great.

    How about a pic of Sinbad. Haven't seen him for awhile.
