If you'd like to spend an afternoon absorbing the rustic, historic and uncommonly lovely phenomenon that is a covered bridge in autumn, you do not have far to go. Pennsylvania, with more than 200 covered bridges, has the most remaining of any state in the union; Lancaster County, with 29, has the largest concentration in Pennsylvania. What, did you think you had to go to Iowa? Madison County, Iowa, became famous for its covered bridges when Robert James Waller set his 1992 novel, The Bridges of Madison County, there, and the 1995 Clint Eastwood / Meryl Streep movie was filmed on location.

BOSTON - The other night there was a perfect clash of cultures at an intersection in Volant, Pa. An SUV collided with a horse-drawn Amish buggy. The score was SUV 1, Horse 0. The clash was no surprise to those of us who have more horsepower than our Amish brethren but less than a Hummer. SUVs have, after all, become the target of choice for those who have finally connected the dots between the cars we drive, the wars we fight and the globe we warm. In the past months, SUVs have been ticketed, picketed and spray-painted.

For more than 150 years, Hereford was a tiny farm village flourishing on the road between Baltimore and York, Pa., but modern development has changed its face and created a divide between the old and the new."There is an incredible cultural clash between the good ol' boy, laid-back farmers and the high-profile new gentry who have built their big houses on subdivided farms and on the little back roads," said J. Lee Bishop, secretary of the Hereford Community Association.Strung out along York Road north and south of Mount Carmel Road, Hereford also has become a major shopping point, attracting commuters from northern Baltimore County and Pennsylvania.

Years ago, when we lived in the Midwest, we spent a weekend at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan. It was our first stay at a resort hotel, and we remember it as being very posh and elegant and the island as an old-fashioned place with no motor traffic.The Grand was not new even then, so I suppose it is no longer so grand and we would be disappointed if we went back, although we talk about doing so. Can you tell us anything about the hotel and the island as they are today?You wouldn't be disappointed.
