Knights Ferry, population 98.

Not kidding. This town is the smallest town I’ve ever been to. It has the oldest operating general store in the US. You can still smoke inside the bar saloon, that blew my mind and made me drink my beer faster than ever before. It’s also home of the the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi.

Mr. Fun’s parents and brother came out for the weekend and when they are in town it means exploring and getting your feet dirty, I love it.

Of course when we left for breakfast we didn’t know so JJ wore a dress and I wore an outfit not made for getting your feet dirty in. It was all good though, we managed it like ladies.

I love that Mr. Fun is such an explorer and pushes the kids to go a few steps further than if they were with me or on their own. We thought you could still drive on the bridge but it was closed in 1981. Finding it was a struck of luck as we parked just to walk down and check out the river.

So if you are ever near Knights Ferry, passing through from Yosemite to wherever you should stop and explore. You won’t regret it. It’s very cool to see a part of history.

And yes, all I can think is this location would make for really cool Christmas cards that I haven’t sent out in two years.
