A long time ago, when I was a world famous artist studying at The Art Institute de Harrison Elementary, covered bridges were my favorite subject, my specialty really. But I always got hung up on the road leading into the bridge, I could never quite get the perspective right. I’d spend hours erasing and reworking the dang road, but I could never get it right. Ultimately, that’s what lead to my undoing as a famous artist. That, and I sucked at art. Now days, when I pull up to a covered bridge for the first time, I always look at the road leading into it, and you know what? I had it right all along!
Darlington Covered Bridge was built in 1868 by the Smith Bridge Co. and crosses Sugar Creek in Montgomery County Indiana.
