I-70 will get you somewhere fast, but since it’s not the most interesting way to travel, I took Route 22 on the way home from the Charles Dickens display in Cambridge. Route 22 is not exactly a back road but one bit of Americana was new to me.
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S_bridge, “[a]n S bridge is a double-curved bridge, shaped roughly like a shallow letter S, used in early 19th century road construction in the United States. They were generally used for crossing small, curving streams with uneven banks. These bridges are found in and around the New Concord, Ohio area.”
On through Somerset, with a quick stop on Otterbein Road. The Horseshoe Grave won’t be around forever, and I like to pay my respects.
