Bridge Work

I had an opportunity this last weekend to do a bit of exploring.

Covered Bridge 3

About 40 minutes north of me is a smallish town called Cedarburg.  Their claim to fame is ice cream (Cedar Crest) and being a little, picturesque town in Wisconsin close enough to Lake Michigan to attract the tourist dollars in the summer, but far enough away from it to avoid the worst of the Lake Effect snow in the winter.

They also have a thing for wineries, pottery, and they have a hot-glass studio.  I may have to take a class or 2 sometime soon, as glass artwork is something that’s interested the muses for a LONG time.

The other thing they have the the last standing covered bridge in the state.  The township has turned it, and the surrounding riverlands, into an historic landmark, thus protected for picnickers and visiting history buffs like me.

It was a fantastic day – not too terribly cold, no wind, and sunshiney.  I got some fantastic shots, and the kids and I mapped out some plans to go back with the proper camera and props in the spring.

  1. Covered bridges are such wonderful landmarks of space and time. The neighboring county has an annual covered bridges festival that’s in ju annual to do list. One year I followed the map to all 28 bridges and got at least one picture of each in case I never got to see them again.
