    Title: Fall in Lancaster Ohio

    Submitted by: skbailey2468

    Comment by skbailey2468: It was a crisp late September morning, and we decided to take a hike. The Ally Park was the perfect place. As we gazed across the lake, we could see the fall leaves reflecting their beautiful colors upon the water. The Hutchins Covered Bridge is nestled in the background and looked as good as it did when it was built back in 1904. We could not help but wonder how many horses and carriages had crossed that old bridge in the past 106 years. The bridge was rebuilt in 2000 and is still used today.
