Covered Bridges

What is it about covered bridges that attracts us all? Is it the idea of simpler times when horse drawn buggies were ridden? Or is is the craftsmanship (a dying art)of the American workman? I have visited and taken more pictures of covered bridges then I care to count but I am always fascinated by the simple beauty of these works of art. This one is one of myย  favorites in Vermont.

I am practicing embedding from Pinterest for blogging 101

  1. It’s not just the visual appeal. It’s also the sound one makes when going across them. I’m all about atmosphere. Thank you for the reminder.

      West Arlington is in Vermont on the Battenkill River.Norman Rockwell once lived there and now there is an inn where he lived. Lots of covered bridges in Vermont and New Hampshire. I could not pass one by without stopping much to hubby’s dismay. This bridge is one of the most photographed. Many of the bridges you can walk over and it does give you an eerie feeling as you look below at the water. You cannot help but think of all the travelers that past that way. Lots of initials and postings are still on the wood beams of the bridges. So glad that many of these bridges have been preserved

  6. It looks beautiful. Like a little cottage in itself, and yes, it does remind me of Robert Frost’s chilly and deep poetry. Your description is perfect, be it scenery or books, and i think you deserve a Liebster Award nomination ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the covered bridges! We have one very similar in Kitchener/Waterloo, Ontario. It’s also known as “the Kissing Bridge” made popular by the locals. The style is exact, the colour very similar. Thank you for sharing!
