Butler County's Covered Bridges

There's nothing quite like the beauty of covered bridges in the spring. These structures can also serve as a pretty cool photo-opportunity. Black Covered Bridge (pictured below) is one of three here in Butler County, and it's also recognized as one of the longest covered bridges in the state!

The Ultimate Skydiving Experience

Take it from me, there is no better place to get a cool photo than 10,000+ feet above the ground. However, that is only a secondary benefit to Start Skydiving. You really should be going to experience the surreal moment of floating in the sky. It's an unforgettable day and worth every second.

And of course, don't forget to post your photos and use #BCinspired!
