Stronghold to the Past

Covered Bridges – A Stronghold to the Past

As my hubby and I wandered across three states in search of covered bridges, I found myself reflecting to the past. I am often amazed at how much people accomplished all those years ago with less tools and the instant access to information as we have today. As I considered the changes I have experienced just in my own lifetime, I couldn’t help thinking about our 18-month old granddaughter. It is difficult to imagine what strifes, joys, and accomplishments she will encounter as she grows up.

Taking an occasional inward look at my life is fun but I never stay there for long. There are way too many things to check off on my bucket list and so much more to learn. Always looking forward to the continuity of new experiences.

Bring on the adventures!

Oh, silly me. I almost forgot to tell you about this bridge. This is the Medora Covered Bridge in Jackson County, Indiana and spans the East Fork of the White River. Who knew we have the longest covered bridge in the United States right here in Indiana? It is even listed in the National Register of Historic Places. With its original truss still in place, it is open to pedestrians only. No worries, though. A road runs alongside the bridge with room to pull over for a walk across the bridge.

This post is my entry for this month’s Pick a Word Challenge. All five words were interpreted through one pic but you might have to read the entire post to find them – continuity, inward, pedestrian, reflecting, and stronghold.

Have a great weekend, y’all!
