    Covered bridges

    Took the TW through Amish country in Lancaster PA in search of some covered bridges.

    Thanks for posting these pics!

    Having grown up in Ohio and living for about 10 years in Indiana, I am glad to see that these wooden bridges are still being preserved and maintained. These bring back a lot of fond memories.

    There are 28 of them in Lancaster county. I made it to 6 of them today. Hope to make it to more of them this weekend.

    There is a major reflective phenomenon evident on the right hand sides of all of these bridges (the third one is most conspicuous and fascinating). For what is probably dull paint on a primarily wooden surface its surprising that the waters reflection causes that halo distortion. (Look at third image in large format; but its evident on all except the bridge that was taken from the left (sun on opposite side?).

    No covered bridges but some nice Amish farm roads while on a short 50 mile run the other day.

    I do quite a bit of riding in PA and it’s definitely one of my favorite rides.

    Here’s something else you might enjoy the White Rose Motorcycle Club puts on amazing Hill Climbs. I’ll be there in September with my family. I took my wife and daughter there last year and they want to attend again this year.
