Last week I drove down over the southern PA border, about 20 miles away, into northern Delaware and visited the Brandywine Creek State Park. Nice big park of climax forest of oak, hickory, beech, tuliptree, and such plus wide open fields of turf, pasture, and meadow in an area that is still the Appalachian Piedmont Region with big hills and low mountain ridges. I took shots of some Redbud & American Flowering Dogwood trees in bloom and two Carolina Silverbell trees with their white bell-like flowers; plus Sassafras in yellow bloom.

That is a beautiful drive! Is the covered bridge still there?
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks! I did not see a covered bridge, but that does not mean it is not there. My first visit there.
