Good Fences ~ Edition 67 ~

The Amazing Race
The hubs and I love the television show The Amazing Race

While we were in Lancaster we decided to have our own version of that 
adventure when we discovered that there were 
23 covered bridges in the area.

Our mission, as we decided to create it,
was to find and photograph as many covered bridges as we could,
without being eliminated.....
hehehe, you have to watch the show to understand that last line!

We had a map and decided there were not going to be any road blocks!
(you have to know the show)

Bridge Number 1




Bridge Number 2




Bridge Number 3





Bridge Number 4



This last one was a re-creation, decorative covered bridge,
in a shopping center.



All the bridges started to look the same, we were tired,
so we decided to start the 2 plus hour ride home.

This was a really fun trip, Lancaster Pa., is an especially beautiful area.
If you have never been, I recommend seeing it and learning
about the Amish Community that lives there.

It's good to be home!!

Sharing these images taken on June 25th in Lancaster, Pa. with 
for Good Fences
Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!

  9. What fun, (and it's a great show too) we don't have as many here in Minnesota, but there's one not too far away from me. I especially like the style of that last bridge, it's very unique! Enjoy your 4th of July celebrations with your hubby, I know you'll have a blast.

  11. Loved the smiles, of course. But...do you know the purpose of a 'covered' bridge? Just aesthetics?

  14. I think you won the race, even though you stopped early. I mean, like you say, they were all beginning to look alike but the best thing of all was the fun you had planning and executing the race. Good job.

  19. Have you put cut your name in the bridge also? I know that yours and Hubs name should fit in very well in some of the bridge.
    Very nice picture on both of you ☆ ☺

It's such a pretty area, with all the quaintness of country living! Your bridges were great, too! Glad you had such a great time, including the balloon ride!

  24. I agree, they do start to look the same after awhile. although they are still beautiful.

    I've thought the same thing after hunting the covered bridges of Bedford County, Pa.
