Photography Adventure

Yesterday afternoon my good friend and I headed west to the covered bridges of Winterset. The area is most known for the 1995 Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep movie "The Bridges of Madison County". I had never been before, so I was really excited to check it out.

Apparently a lot of people have this dumb urge to write on these bridges. Most were built in the 1800s. Seriously?! Who would do that? But I have to admit it made for some interesting reading.

After touring a few bridges still in tact where they were originally built in the country, we headed into town. My friend's dad, who grew up in the area, helped move one of the bridges into the city park when he was in high school.

We drove through the park on a narrow, rough road. Kinda wished I had four wheel drive at the time. We came across a cool tower, also built in the 1800s. As we went to leave I tugged the handle. Locked. Checked my pockets. No keys. My friend saw them dangling from the ignition. UGG!

My cell phone was locked inside, as was my friend's phone. Thanks to a very nice woman who took pity on us, I was able to call the Winterset police and a very nice officer got us back into my car.

It was quite the adventure. At least I got some neat images from it all!
