Also, here is where I grew up, starting here and heading south are some fun roads too. Also right near there is the Ridge Cemetery with some neat old gravestones from the 1700s. I think the oldest is right at the top of the hill near a large evergreen tree.

I really wish I could ride there with you, but since I can't I'm really looking forward to the pics in this forum!


Suruppak, the Cowden bridge is one of the bridges on my list for next week. Thanks for the info on the Ridge Cemetery. I enjoy searching old cemeterys looking for old grave stones.

Here is a Google Map of the location of the 8 bridges I wish to visit. Im not sure there will be enough time to stop at them all in one day, as its a 2.5 hour ride each way. If I have to return later to finish them all, I'll let you know.
