Helmick Covered Bridge

Yesterday I told you about adventuring with my folks to find two covered bridges. This is the other bridge we found.

It’s called Helmick and it is positively picturesque. That pop of red against the landscape was a real thrill to see and a closer look didn’t disappoint.

Built in 1867, it has been restored so you can drive through it and there are a couple of good spots where you can park if you wish to stop for pictures.

There are also some places where you can scurry down to the stream if you’re wearing decent shoes. I was just wearing tennis shoes and made it ok. The water was low enough that I could skip rocks to get a good look.

I’m not a fan of graffiti in any place but was quite taken with this little portrait. The bow is a nice touch.
