Reflections of a Covered Bridge

I probably saw my first covered bridge somewhere in Indiana while driving on U.S. 36 to Indianapolis. There are a cluster of covered bridges around Rockville, Indiana, and the town holds a covered bridge festival every fall.

I also remember seeing covered bridges in Vermont during a visit there in the late 1970s.

This covered bridge is located in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near Everett. I had been meaning to find and photograph this bridge for some time and finally took the time to do that in October 2015.

It was a beautiful autumn Sunday afternoon and some color lingered on the trees. The bridge spans Furnace Run, a tributary of the Cuyahoga River.

It is no longer used for through traffic and is the last covered bridge left in Summit County, Ohio.
