Covered Bridge (Parke Co IN)

8 Nov

Turkey Run State Park hiking trail (foot traffic only) AKA Narrows Covered Bridge

Modern concrete bridge directly behind the original covered one (notice the arches).

Built in 1882. The purpose of covering the bridge was to extend the life of the wooden supporting beams (safety).

Let’s go again!

These photos were taken back in the day when I used film.  It was joyful to have “Alex” my German Shepard/Husky return!  He was never off a leash in town, so it seemed risky in the country.  My regret is that we did not have a sled and a team to run with.  😦

Flash back, could have been yesterday

It was October 1995.

Walking to Meadow

Crrrrisssppcccrrracckllewwooosshh walking through autumn leaves.

Wide trail lined with small trees and undergrowth

Deep ruts from tractor tires

Adjacent to small irregular shaped fields for corn and soybeans

Winding stream with rocky bed to cross twice

The stream

The stream

Broad wings take hawk gliding above tree tops

A mossy granite block marks the place where a one room farm-house stood

I stopped near the end of the road by steep eroded bank

Observing bright afternoon sun’s reflection on a calm pool in stream

A cool gust of wind sends ripples across water

Twinkling stars appear on the surface

My destination is meadow bounded by tree covered ridges

Meadow with island of tulip trees

Tulip trees with bright yellow leaves

Tulip trees with brown flower pods pointed to clear blue sky

Elements earth and sky connect through trees

I found my connection with earth and sky walking to meadow
