Erb's Bridge

I recently traveled to Pennsylvania.  While there we spent the night with one of my mother's college friends.  I hadn't seen them since I was perhaps 10 years old.  Reconnecting with the family was great and I had an incredible time. 

One of the things I've always remembered about their place is that it overlooked a covered bridge.

Erb's Bridge is an 80 foot span crossing Hammer Creek in Lancaster County Pennsylvania and was built in 1849.  Apparently, if I'd been up a bit earlier, a hot air balloon landed just off to the left side of the picture.  I would have really liked to have gotten that shot.

This is the view from our friend's front steps.
