Coburn Covered Bridge

    Newer Older

    East Montpelier, Vermont, USA

    I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent Saturday four wheeling the muddy road of Vermont bridge hunting. I broke my glasses and had my camera started failing at shutter speeds over 1/400. I'm pretty happy with the results though, so I'm calling it an adventure.

    This bridge is named after it's builder Larned Coburn, who built it in 1851 at no cost to the town just to get the road to run by his land.

    It's alternate name is the Cemetery Bridge, becuase of the cemetery just down the road.

      and great tones, it's hard to get a good shot in that bright sun, but this looks great.

      Beautiful capture, James! Pursuing maple sugar, these past few weeks, we've managed to go from dry ground at home to dangerous roads in the Berkshires in Massachusetts & near Lake George in Warren County, New York. Right now, we're in Maine, again on dry ground. When we get home, we'll take a weekend to see how New Hampshire & Vermont are faring this Spring!
