Today I went out to a yarn festival quite a ways west of town. It was a fun outing but it was the drive home where I had the most fun. The small town of West Montrose has a beautiful covered bridge, called the Kissing Bridge. It is the only wood covered bridge in Ontario and one of the oldest in Canada.

Unfortunately, there is no way to get down to the river to get better views of the bridge as all the surrounding area is private property. It’s a shame really but I guess they’ve had a few problems because previously there weren’t so many “No  Trespassing” signs up. I guess it didn’t help matters that the recent movie “It” was filmed here. So, in the end it was a short stop here as photographic angles were limited.

When driving through the country side it’s not that hard to find ruins of one barn or another so it wasn’t too much of a surprise when I came across this one. I’m not sure why but there is something about them that always makes me stop and take a photograph.
