I was out and about a couple of weeks ago. Stopping in Waits River for the traditional picture is a requirement. At the time this picture was taken, there was no color in the trees yet. My guess is this will be colorful in about a week or so. If the rain doesn’t strip the trees.
The Green River Covered Bridge is a covered bridge in western Guilford, Vermont. Built in the 1870s by Marcus Worden, it is a Town lattice truss bridge, carrying Green River Road over the eponymous river in a small rural village of the same name. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
When I was driving by, I took notice that the clouds looked kinda stormy. I snapped a few pictures before the skies opened up.
I will NEVER attempt to take this picture again. Scared was an understatement.
Willard “Old Bridge”
Originally built in 1870, the “Old Bridge” in the background was later renovated in 1953 and repaired in 1979. The bridge spans 128 feet and is sometimes referred to as the North Hartland East Covered Bridge. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in August, 1973.
Willard “New Bridge”
There were always two covered bridges at this location. The original second bridge (in the foreground) was built circa 1872, but was replaced in 1938 when the original was lost in the September hurricane of that same year. Many years later in 2001, when it began to deteriorate, the “New Bridge” was constructed and stands there still today. This bridge is also known as the North Hartland West Twin Covered Bridge.
I thought I would go out in the 90 degree heat and go play with my camera in East Peacham Vermont. As you can see, we need rain.
