Covered Bridges

Covered Bridges and geocaching just seem to go together. Quite country roads and relaxing on a weekend seem to hit a new height with a covered bridge thrown in. In Ohio, there is even a challenge cache for covered bridges.

Windsor Bridge

Yesterday we spent a quiet afternoon in Ashtabula County hunting covered bridge caches. We found six and dnf'd two for a fun afternoon. Ali checked this morning and said we have 18 of the 25 required finds to qualify for the Ohio Covered Bridge Challenge.

Another visit to Ashtabula and a nice spring afternoon spent in Columbiana County should be enough to complete the challenge.

Graham Road Bridge has been bypassed,

but offers a unique picnic option.

Ashtabula County has made a tourism industry of covered bridges. Their roads are filled with visitors in the autumn. We have enjoyed caching in the afternoon at these bridges with the miata (but not this afternoon... brrrr)
