Covered Bridges and Lava Fields

Another short post today. Yesterday we drove from Prineville to Cottage Grove, passing through lava fields and in the afternoon driving around to see covered bridges. We’re staying the night at a lovely resort called Village Green. We have our own private garden plus there are 14 acres of garden for resort visitors to wander around. It’s really lovely and deserving of a post of its own.

Here’s a shot of the lava fields. You can see where they have flowed around some trees, leaving them standing while the rest of the area was destroyed.


And here’s a shot of the Stewart Covered bridge with our rental car. The bridge was constructed in 1930 and restored in 1996.


We’re off to Crater Lake National Park tomorrow. Unfortunately there are wildfires around and some of the roads have been closed. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

  1. Nobody can ever accuse the Munro’s of not knowing how to take a good vacation!!

    By the looks of your pics, you’ve had stunning weather along for your journey. And bravo you for taking your camera and laptop so you can share.

    Love the covered bridge. Reminds me of how much enjoyed the movie, Bridges of Madison County *sigh*

  2. Hey! I didn’t know you were still in the states! You’re like one state away from me right now! Hope you guys are having a blast :)

  3. I love going through covered bridges – lots of them in the New England area too. Looks like you had a great time! :)

  4. Wylie – we have had great weather with only a couple of days of rain. Evidently all the rain fell in New Zealand while we were away. Shame about that. :wink:

    Shelli – we’re in the last days of our vacation. It won’t be long until it’s back to work for both of us.

    Debora – hi! We saw some covered bridges when we visited New England a few years ago. We enjoyed driving through them – going through several times. The mailperson honked their horn at us. :blush:
