I'm an east coast girl living in a west coast world. I grew up in New England before moving to SoCal for several years. I then lived in NYC or a year before moving to AZ in 2009. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years of my adult life and I love photography, writing, and traveling around the U.S. as well as to far-flung locations around the world! Travel is my life and writing about it is a dream.
There’s just something so sweet and charming about a covered bridge. History combined with a picturesque natural setting adds to the allure of these structures that connect us from one side of a river to the other. One such bridge is Illinois’ longest covered bridge that you can find hiding out in the tiny town of Greenup.
