Medora Covered Bridge

We took a "special" ride today down to Medora covered bridge.  It was special in that we rode on Friday.  Merle decided it was going to rain Saturday so we should take advantage of the clear weather on Friday.  Merle took us down the east side of Indiana to Seymour.

Following Merle:

We then headed west to Medora.  Medora is just a small town in southern Indiana but it has a world famous bridge near there.  In fact, it's the longest covered bridge in the U.S.--460 feet long!  It's a triple span bridge spanning the east fork of the White River.

Here's a look at the inside of the bridge (it's no longer open to traffic and is being rebuilt):

After the bridge visit we rode up to Brown County along the east side of Brown County State Park.  Beautiful ride along there.  We then traveled the scenic, curving, roads back up north from Nashville, Indiana to Martinsville, Indiana.  From Martinsville, we rode back home on the west side of Indianapolis.  On the way home we rode over the bridge at Morse Lake at Cicero, Indiana:

We arrived home after a twelve hour ride (with many stops) and traveled 343 miles by my odometer.  It was a nice ride but hot-94 degrees.
