Missouri’s Covered Bridges

sandycreekCovered bridges are really a neat slice of history. Many states have worked to preserve the few that remain. Missouri has four such spans and I recently visited the Sandy Creek covered bridge south of St. Louis. What makes this bridge such a great place to visit is that there are over 200 acres adjacent to it that are open for hiking, picnicking and swimming. It’s the perfect place to take a break from the day and enjoy a slice of history and nature.
