On a recent Saturday afternoon, we took a ride to Zumbrota, Minnesota to explore Minnesota’s only covered bridge which is listed in the National Historic Registery.
When we entered town, we didn’t immediately spot any signs that pointed us in the right direction. Eventually, one sign pointed us towards a park — an 85 acre park named Covered Bridge Park. How appropriate.
The day was overcast but there were quite a few people in the park picnicking and enjoying the day. Looking to the left, we spotted what we thought was the entrance to the bridge.
To the left of the trees is a paved walkway which makes this bridge handicapped accessible.
Cute sign, eh?
When I entered, memories of the movie Bridges of Madison County came to mind. I wonder if anyone has ever taken photos of bridges in Minnesota, covered or uncovered.
Oooohhh, a tad dark in here.
There are windows (no glass) that you can look out through to see the Zumbro River.
Here’s a view of the inside of the roof.
And another view … you suppose there are any spiders here?
Here’s the other entance of the bridge …
And looking back, here’s where we entered …
A nice warm overcast day for a walk on a bridge.
