NEW ENGLAND’S ROMANTIC COVERED BRIDGES
What could be more romantic than a covered bridge? New England (especially Vermont) has them by the score. Some are just for walking across a river; others are also for cycling. A surprising number are on roads, providing motorists with a brief back in time experience. As to why covered bridges were built, some reckon that the roofs protected the beams from rotting, or from freezing in bad weather. Others say that, since these bridges look like barns, animals would cross without fear. Whatever the reason, these distinctive crossings are a much-loved part of the New England landscape.
This bridge is located in Vermont.
