About a mile into my 9-mile detour, I was trying to decide if I had made a foolish decision. The county road I was on was snow-covered, drifted, and quite treacherous at times and I never saw another vehicle.
But the lure of a snow-frosted covered bridge is strong and overrode my better judgment.
What a beauty, a Hoosier treasure!
I do love me an old-fashioned covered bridge...
Built in 1888...that makes it 130 years old and it's been maintained in great shape.
Still drivable...although it had seen very little traffic in recent days. The blizzard winds had pushed snow inside the bridge.
Worth a few nerve-wracking moments of driving in nasty conditions...
The Forsythe Mill covered bridge.
