Nice Last Day

Great weather, nice two lane backroads through Ohio and Indiana farm country, a little town square heritage festival, some murals in Richmond, Indiana, and two (or three, if you count my first ever covered viaduct) covered bridges, made for a very nice last full day on the road.

Brookville Lake in Indiana
New Madison Indiana town square

 

Then I rolled into Richmond, Indiana.

This mural covers the whole side of an old firehouse which is now home to the Firehouse BBQ & Blues restaurant - pretty clever

 

At the Whitewater Canal Historic Site in Indiana I saw my first covered wooden aqueduct, and it turns out, the only one still operating in the United States.

The Duck Creek Aqueduct carries the Whitewater Barge Canal over Duck Creek
Of course, a barge canal needs a barge
and the barge needs something to make it go - so we have Joey & Jordon

 

Just two covered bridges.
