Today we returned to our daughter’s home in Durham, NC.
On the way home we visited the North Carolina Aviation Museum which has an interesting collection of old planes and a lot of memorabilia from many of the conflicts the US has been involved in. The museum was staffed by a couple of volunteers and the one we spoke to was very interested to learn that Australia has a similar museum at Temora, NSW.
Whilst on our way to the museum I noticed a sign to the ‘Pisgah Covered Bridge’. I’d been hoping to see an original covered bridge during our visit and this was definitely an unexpected find.
This historic structure, one of NC’s two remaining covered bridges, was built in 1911 at a cost of $40. The bridge is 54 feet in length and crosses the West Fork Branch of Little River within the Uwharrie National Forest.
It was a real bonus and a great way to end our two week, 2,765 miles/4,450 kilometres long ‘Fall Tour’!
