The Bridges Minus One of Madison County

I never read the book. I never saw the movie. I did, however, go to summer camp when I was in elementary school, in Madison Country, of bridge fame. It's in central, southern Iowa.

Today's headline from the Des Moines Register says that the Cedar Bridge, the one evidently most famous from the movie, has burned down. There are 6 remaining covered bridges in the country. Anyways, you can read more on it here.

It's not sad because of the book or movie, which I never read, so much as it's a place I've visited, one of the lovely historic places from my childhood in a lovely countryside. Goodbye bridge! I'm glad you existed!
