Travel: The Corbins visit 13 KY covered bridges

There's a wonderful photo essay in today by Judy Corbin of the Ebenezer community of South Green County, KY.

Judy and Glenn Corbin set out to do something a bit unusual, to see the last remaining old Covered Bridges in Kentucky. There's was a guide for them: Bridges to the PastKentucky's Remaining Covered Bridgesby John Hultgren, which they used and share with CM readers.

IF you've done such a trip, perhaps seeing all the Columbia's or Greensburgs or Jamestowns in the US, or have visited all the county seats, or actually biked, walked or gone by motorcar on every mile of Adair County's KY 768 - our nearly complete ring road - or put together your own Trailblazing Trip, let us know. In the meantime, we hope you'll enjoy Judy Corbin's fascinating jewel of photo/story. -EW

Travel: Corbins tour remaining KY covered bridges

2011-09-09 - Homebase: Ebenezer, Green Co., KY - Photo by Judy Corbin.

By Judy Corbin
Over the summer, Glenn and I, traveled across KY to see the last 13 remaining covered bridges of KY. Here is a collage to show each bridge that we visited. I would encourage anyone who likes to travel the backroads to take this journey. We began our journey from Greensburg on Day 1 (July 1, 2011) and went to: 1) Walcott (or White's Bridge) located in Bracken County; 2) Valley Pike Bridge in Mason County; 3) Dover Bridge in Mason County; 4) Cabin Creek Bridge in Lewis County; 5) Bennett's Mill Bridge in Greenup County; 6) Oldtown Bridge in Greenup County (also drove by the homeplace of Jesse Stuart while in Greenup County); After spending the night in Morehead, we began Day 2 of our trek by visiting the following: 7) Grange City or Hillsboro Bridge in Fleming County; 8) Ringos Mill in Fleming County--the pot of flowers was beside this bridge and the others in Fleming Co. as well; 9) Goddard Bridge also in Fleming County; 10) Johnson Creek Bridge in Robertson County; 11) Colville Bridge in Bourbon County; 12) Switzer Bridge in Franklin County; and our final bridge was Beech Fork Bridge in Washington County. I thought it was neat to learn that it was the longest covered bridge in Kentucky - made of two span Burr Truss each being 102 feet long (and it was located in the county nearest to us ). Great trip to enjoy the scenery as well as historical bridges. I bet it would really be a neat trip in the fall. -Judy Corbin.
