There's something intriguing about covered bridges.
During a recent mini-trip to Bennington, Vermont, hubs and I, just for fun, arranged to drive over three of them.
They are very picturesque.
They were all painted dark red and named Silk Road Bridge, Paper Mill Bridge and plain ol' Henry Bridge (shown at top of post).
Apparently, bridges were originally covered to protect them from bad weather, of which New England has plenty during the harsh winters.
The bridges we drove over were very narrow, allowing one car at a time to pass through.
Does anyone know why bridges are now built but no longer covered? After all, we still get the bad weather in the winter!
