I'm finding it hard to picture turkeys roosting in this spot, but the exposed sandstone is beautiful and the bridge built overhead ain't too shabby either.

We had to be careful and watch out for slippery spots. I was almost a goner when I slid a few inches on some ice that was covered in a dusting of snow coming down the side of the ravine. Cory somehow didn't slip at all even though he was wearing loafers.
We went out and bought him some Keen hiking boots at Gander Mountain the other day. He's in trouble now, I'll be dragging him all up and down the mountains soon now that he'll be outfitted properly.
I loved the icicles hanging off the ledges, this was the kind of thing I was hoping to see on this trip. It seems like all I have to do is make a wish list sometimes and then I easily find just what I wanted. Maybe I should wish for harder things? This park would be great for Wayne and I to return to with the fifth wheel for a long weekend to hike the trails which look really interesting but besides this little path I did not have time to check them out.

I got up this morning before Cory and checked out the Narrows Covered Bridge, the Cox Ford Covered Bridge which bookend the park property and then took a quick look at the campground before we had to move on to our next destination.
A few sites looked big enough for the fifth wheel, including the 55 foot pull through space in site #105. Most sites are 45-50 feet long. They are adequately spaced but not as roomy as some state parks. The ones in the woods on small loops were very nice but we would never fit in those, I especially liked site 34 but it's only 48 feet long. Maybe Wayne will tell me we can fit after all if we park off to the side.
I'm sure somebody out there is saying to themselves, "Umm, hello? Where are those covered bridges you mentioned?" You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see!
