Covered Bridges of Madison County - Winterset, Iowa
Madison County, Iowa is home to six covered bridges out of an original 19 such bridges in the county. The area celebrates this heritage with an Annual Covered Bridge Festival.
The county's bridges came to national fame first in the 1992 Robert James Waller best-selling book The Bridges of Madison County, and then later in the 1995 Clint Eastwood-directed movie of the same name.
But that's not Madison County's only Hollywood connection. Western legend John Wayne was born here.

Time for a taste of Holland. We have been there before, in the 70s, so this was a flashback. The Windmill tour is a must, it is very interesting. Go on a day when there is some wind however. Great camping spots at the Fair Grounds.
