From the Archives - Iowa, 2012
There once were 19 covered bridges in Madison County, Iowa, only 6 remain today. You can pay $50 for a two-hour guided tour of the bridges but it is more fun to search them out on your own. One can pick up a free map from the Chamber of Commerce in Winterset which is pretty well centrally located among them all. One we didn't go to for it wasn't motor home friendly getting to it and another was clear across the county away from our intended direction of travel.
Most of the six bridges were used in some way or another
in the movie by that name starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood.
Pretty amazing the engineering in the construction of these covered bridges.
Some goober wanted his picture taken on the bridge.
