The Albany Bridge in Winter

Some of you may recall the Albany Bridge from my series on covered bridges last year. It was the one that was fastened by metal rods to bedrock on the river banks to keep it from being washed away by spring floods.

The road on which the bridge is situated is part of the National Forest and is not maintained in winter. Fortunately, the parking lot is plowed and accessible. That means the bridge and the road beyond it is perfect for cross country skiers and others.

I’d like to return in the spring to see that the river looks like and how high it rises.

This is one of the rods holding the bridge in place.

    One of these days, I’ll go take a look at the Covered Bridges in our area to see how they are doing from the heavy snow we’ve had this Winter. They should be ok.

    We like these pictures. We wouldn’t have guessed that this bridge is in the US. We lived for quite a while in Switzerland where such bridges are traditional. You find them all over the country.
