5 Mile Bridge

I love this little bridge! It is a little more than the half way point on a favorite bike ride that I take.
I love this little bridge! It is a little more than the half way point on a favorite bike ride that I take. Located near this bridge are some beautiful barns that I have previously posted here and here. The road I take is called Old Stage Road and it basically follows the Illinois River, winding through the peaceful countryside.
