|It has been raining here a lot. Even some of the locals are getting tired of the wetness and dismal skies. So where there is a break in the rain, we go out. Somewhere. Anywhere. Just to soak up some sunshine. This time we decided to do the Linn County Covered Bridge Tour. There are nine covered bridges here in this county alone. If we would have continued on to neighboring counties, we could have seen more than 21 covered bridges all within an easy drive. Most of these were built around 1930 – 1940. They were covered due to the large amount of rain in this area, and it helped to make them last longer since the decks were made of wood. Now they are being preserved and have become a draw for tourism. Enjoy the pictures!
