Okay, this is the best I could do without a zoom and a tripod on a quick drive-by through Mansfield, Indiana, and nearby countryside just to guage how the fall colors will present themselves by Oct. 10. The Parke County Covered Bridge Festival runs through Oct. 19.

Found this barn Sunday on a drive through the countryside of Putnam County, Indiana. I think it has murals on all four sides, so I’m going back to ask the owner if I can get a closer look at it.

Unlike Parke County, the Covered Bridge Capital of the World, Putnam has just nine covered bridges. The Parke County Covered Bridge Festival this year runs from Oct. 12-21.
