Please refer to my first Ashtabula County OH Covered Bridge Tour blog post for additional information about this series of blog posts.
Bob took this picture of me photographing the Smolen-Gulf Covered Bridge.
This is the photograph that I took of Smolen-Gulf Covered Bridge from the park bench.
I did walk down to street level for another vantage point.
The Smolen-Gulf Covered Bridge carries State Road over the Ashtabula River.
This is the longest covered bridge in the United States.
We visited the Smolen-Gulf Covered Bridge one time before, during the Labor Day weekend in 2010. During that visit we walked across the bridge and drove down to Indian Trails Park, located underneath the bridge. I wrote at that time that we planned “to make a return trip to Ohio because there are sixteen more covered bridges in Ashtabula County”. I want to make a return trip to visit some or all of the covered bridges in Ashtabula County. I sure hope it doesn’t take us almost 6 years to make that return trip!
