We decided to go to Sachs Covered Bridge because we hadn't been there for a while. The bridge is gorgeous and a prime example of something that's disappearing in the US Go if your get a chance.

Camped at Gettysburg campground and this covered bridge is only a few miles away. Enjoyed seeing and walking across the covered bridge. Well worth the visit.
