Like most people, I have a bucket list. One of the top things on the list is being a school bus driver. Greeting the kids every morning with a smile and, after a hard day at school, an understanding ear.

I guess this a thing for me because of my own bus driver I had when I was in elementary school. Her name was Barbara and she wore bell bottom jeans and clogs. She had a super friendly smile and always made me feel safe when I rode the bus. It was like she knew when I was nervous and she would talk to me and get my mind off of my anxiety and fears. I loved her.

Even before I was able to go to school, I was fascinated with school buses. I remember thinking that was gong to be the best part of going to school. And, some days it was.

The Prestonsburg Passage Rail Trail takes me back to those school days with its amazing covered bridge. They could have made just an ordinary bridge over the creek, but instead they decided to make a bridge that is one of the most unique in the country. Take a look.
