When you play tourist in your hometown, you get a chance to revisit your childhood.

You see things in a whole new light… through fresh eyes.

You also get to relive memories, whether good of bad.

This covered bridge is located in a small town not far from where I grew up.  It is located in a park that I would go to when I really wanted to get away.

It spans the Zumbro River and in the summertime has geese that frequent the little island that it leads to.

It is a foot bridge, and one of the few covered bridges left in the area.  In fact, I can’t recall seeing more than one or two of its kind my whole life.

There aren’t many places like this any more.  I like to think of it as “small town charm.”
