Elmira Things to Do
Maple Syrup Festival
This is a one day festival held once a year generally in the march/april time slot.
Its lots of fun but freezing so make sure you dress warmly.
Elmira is a Mennonite town, very picturesque and interesting.
On festival day the towns main street is closed to traffic for the festival.
Hazy covered bridge: Do not push your luck ;)
A digital camera can do a lot even though the light isn t too much...yet I did take it to the limit a bit ...
Which one would you like to try?
There are dust roads in this area so perhaps it s a good idea to try a buggy?
Ops, you ll need a horse too of course...too bad!
Elmira Local Customs
Local folks that are of the Mennonite belief do not use motorized means of transportion, but just a buggy.
Elmira Warnings and Dangers
A small sign at the bridge says no smoking allowed when crossing it.
Mmm an obvious one, I think ...
Elmira Tourist Traps
We parked the car along the road.
Some guy was arranging three buggies on the crossing.
It was as if he was doing this on purpose for people to photograph for as soon as he saw we were about to park the car, he ran off.
Might have been it was for tourist or he being a mennonite that he ran of, I do not know.
Unique Suggestions: Do like us: take your time and photograph away!

Take your time
Favorite thing: Take your time and photograph the bridge from each angle. Especially when you have a digital camera it sure is worth the bother.Related to:
