I think these old covered bridges are pretty cool. Built in 1861, this one spans across the Talladega Creek near Childersburg, AL. Kymulga Mill and Covered Bridge was one of our picture stops while riding around the area this past Saturday.

Have a good Monday everybody!

whoooooooooooo!!!!!!!! I love stuff like this. I have seen this bridge before while 'm sleeping. No shit.

I have this dream that I find one of these covered bridges and there is enough room for me to scream through it on my bike doing 100mph. I'm gonna do it someday. Think about it. You are screaming at blazing speed toward that opening. And at that speed, it might not look like you are going to make it through the opening...of course, I'll have someone on the other side stopping traffic for me...I'm not a complete moron.

Nice picture...now get out of my head!!

When I used to drive a Rig crosscountry I used to look for scenes like this.
Someday on a bike I'll get to spend time checking them out.

Great picture. I remember lots of those in NY and PA. Every creek (crick, for any rednecks out there) and river had one.

Lady Ridesalot said...

Ann... Me too! :) Thanks!

Webster... I like to imagine what it would be like to be there during the hustle and bustle of daily business. The older I get, the more interested in history I become. I wish I had liked it more while I was in school. :b~~

Baron... As long as we have the older generation around to tell us stories, we can preserve a lot!

Masterchief... :)

Dave... go for it! That sounds like a pretty cool dream, and it's not so far fetched. There are a lot of covered bridges around still in use. I can see you screaming through that little whole with lightening speed!

Observers will be stunned and wonder... What was that? Was it a bird? A plane? NO it's Viking Dave on his Screaming Street Glide! Woo Hoo!

Big D... It'll be nice when you can go back and enjoy the stuff you came across for more than just a pass by. It's time to "stop and smell the roses".

Willy D... I imagine there are a lot more of them up north than here. Covered bridges are so nostalgic they almost all have a great story behind them.

That is a great photo. I've been to & through Childersburg several times in the past two decades and never knew that was there.

I'll have to look for it on my next road trip.

I love old covered bridges. I bet the Harleys sound good going thru it :)

Dave, you've got to wrap the pipes or hit the horn on the way through. Proceeded by a Rebel yell for the last 1/8 mile or so going in.

We have several covered bridges still around. One bridge was just designated one way traffic only. It seems log trucks would smack it coming out with those things sticking up that hold the logs in. Sorry, I forgot at the moment what they're called. One way traffic means the trucks can stay in the middle, which is higher.

The unfortunate thing is that people seem to be losing reverence for things connecting us to our history.

J Cross... Most hidden treasures like this are usually off the beaten path, but it's not hard to find. Have you been to Horse Shoe Bend over by Alex City? Another great treasure!

Allen... Don't you know it! You reminded me of when we were up in the Smokey's last summer. When my pals and I went through the tunnel up in the park, we all reved our motors pretty good! It was very loud!

Irondad... I wish they didn't have to quit making them. I guess as transportation evolves, our structures do also. I just hope we can preserve them for as long as possible, so future generations can enjoy the history as well.

Webster World said...

I do just that. When I lived in Ga. we would go up tp Kennesaw Mt. It was where the big battle was that when Sherman won there he took Atlanta. Well when I was there it was ...like...I could feel it. All over the place. I could feel it. Strange it may be but I can do that in a lot of places of history. Was at Wilson's Creek once same thing. Entered the Empire State closed my eyes and it was like I could feel the 40's. I'm sure the music they had on helped it was from that time. Yea it is cool to put ones self in a period. I own the family farm 1916. I grew up her my boys my dad my grand folks. So hearing it all my life makes it easy to put you self there.

I could ride through that bridge for an hour. just keep turning around, and go, go, go. Hit the throttle and listen to the thunder.

Lady Ridesalot said...

Webster... to me, that's the best way to enjoy your history, to imagine you were there. We have a lot of Civil War groups that like to do reenactments and it's fascinating! We have "Old Alabama Town" right here in Montgomery, and volunteers dress in period costume and work in the old historic buildings reciting history to the visitors. Cool stuff!

Mr. M. Vrrooom Vrooom! I hear ya! We would have to form a line, cause Dave will be flying through doing 100 mph.! :)
