BPC Field Trip: Green and Clay Counties

  • Tulip Trestle

For carpooling, meet at 7:00 a.m. in the parking lot behind Bob Evans, on the west side of town. First stop: Tulip Trestle. Built in 1906 and still in use, the trestle is the third-longest bridge of this kind in the world. It's located on County Road 480E, between Bloomfield and Solsberry. For directions, see http://www.visitgc.com/where-to-go/innovation/tulip-trestle/#.VhfbPW63ijE   After this we will stop at an old one-room school house in Clay County, then proceed to Clay City (the "Mayberry" of the Midwest) for some more shooting and a lunch break. We'll finish the day with some beautiful fall color shooting in Greene-Sullivan state forest, where there are wonderful small ponds for reflections and small lakes for landscape shots. If you choose to last for the entire day (and if the day cooperates), we’ll head to Goose Pond for sunset shooting. Note: Shooting locations may vary slightly from this itinerary. Please watch for the detailed listing on the club’s website.
