I recently traveled to southern Indiana to visit my sister and her family. I do a lot of international travel (well I used to pre-pandemic) and that is truly wonderful. But the truth is the good ole USA has some seriously beautiful places. Too many to be seen in the amount of time we are allotted in our busy schedules. That is for sure. So I try to take advantage of family visits, especially when that family lives in such a breathtaking place. This installment on my travel blog highlights barns (one of my very favorite photo subjects) and bridges (another!) I hope you enjoy and feel the peace that exudes from these places and spaces in rural southern Indiana. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.
Matthew E. Welsh Memorial Bridge
Hayswood Nature Reserve Corydon, IN
Breeden’s Bridge Leavenworth, IN
This old iron bridge consists of two different type of truss spans, which were made in different years, and also, both spans originated from two different locations. “The spans were relocated to their present location in 1959. The Parker Truss span is 400′ long and was constructed in 1900. The Pratt Truss span was constructed in 1883 and is reported to be the oldest of its type in Indiana. The bridge sits in O’Bannon Woods State Park about three miles south of Leavenworth, IN on an old logging road off old Hwy 62.” https://bridgehunter.com/in/harrison/bh36259/
