Betsy and I enjoy traveling back roads whenever possible. It may take us a little longer to get somewhere, but that’s usually not a problem. Besides, we often come across some very interesting sights.
On our way home from our visit to Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio, our GPS took us along two-lane Ohio 93. We were enjoying the autumn color when Betsy spotted a covered bridge. Of course we stopped to investigate.
The Cox Covered Bridge was built in 1884, and served as the road bridge over Brushy Creek in Vinton County, Ohio, until 1992. That year the bridge was moved 20 feet north to rest on a concrete foundation. The bridge no longer carries traffic, but it can be walked across.

We got a great view of a beautiful orange tree looking through the bridge.

The above image from Google Earth shows the location of the bridge. There were no nearby towns, but the Vinton County Airport is off to the southeast. The red dot shows our position in front of the bridge.
