2020 Roadtrip Blog ~ Fountain County Indiana on May 18




My visit

On May 18th, Tracy and I spent the day in Fountain County Indiana. Fountain County has three Covered Bridges: Wallace Covered Bridge, Cades Mill Covered Bridge, and Rob Roy Covered Bridge. We traveled around the county to capture pics of all three. I have been to Wallace and Cades Mill in 2019, but since we were in the area, I decided to visit them again. Wallace and Cades Mill are in rural areas and are easy to get pics of. Rob Roy, on the other hand, is still being used for traffic and is much harder to photograph. The property surrounding Rob Roy is private, and there are several "private property" signs. To keep from getting the law called on me, I decided to just get a pic from the truck! One of my photography goals is to capture all of the Covered Bridges in Indiana. If you are interested in seeing the Covered Bridge photo gallery, click here.

My visit

Fountain County Indiana is full of farms (as is most of Indiana)! These pics were captured during my Fountain County Indiana Roadtrip. I also visited the Portland Arch Nature Preserve during my Roadtrip. To see the Portland Arch Nature Preserve Blog, click here.
