I just love covered bridges. They’re so traditional and iconically North American. Here are a few examples I’ve come across on my Journeys on this great continent.
Tradition squared – a Mennonite wagon crosses a covered bridge (West Montrose, ON)
Me at Swartz Covered Bridge (Wyandot, OH)
A newer-looking covered bridge in Redwood State Park (near Crescent City, CA)
Sachs Covered Bridge reflected in the mirror-smooth waters of Marsh Creek (Gettysburg, PA)
Baltimore Covered Bridge is tiny (Springfield, VT)
Blenheim Covered Bridge (North Blenheim, NY). This was the longest single span covered wooden bridge in the world, until it was sadly destroyed by Hurricane Irene on August 28th, 2011.
This post was inspired by the themes Wood/Spring (from Cee of Cee’s Photography) and Traditional (from Sue of A Word in Your Ear)
While you’re dreaming about crossing a rickety old covered bridge during a spring Sunday drive, why not sign up and follow my continuing Journeys here at Jaspa’s Journal, or through my website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram?
And if that’s not enough for you, there are now three Jaspa’s Journey novels to enjoy as ebooks! Perfect for Kids 8 – 80!
