Until last weekend, i had no idea that there was a covered bridge so close to home. Typically, I drive all over the state to take pictures of covered bridges in very remote location. There are 55 in the state, and I haven’t even photographed half of them.
Note: The bridges were originally covered to protect the road from rain and snow. The covering themselves are relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of building a bridge over a river. Building a cover over a bridge protected a town’s investment.
