Nice place to visit. The plus is that there are other places to visit nearby, as well as state parks.

We stopped by to see this bridge on our drive through western Connecticut and found the setting impressive. There's something about covered bridges that just draws you to them.

This was one of last Covered Bridges we stopped at. Very cool area to take pictures and capture the area of a simpler time that still exists here.One of the reasons that New England is such an interesting area to visit.

We love covered bridges so we added both of the covered bridges in Connecticut to our fall foliage weekend tour. This bridge has beautiful open views of the river and mountains.

I made the trip to see this bridge; it is a one lane bridge over the Housatonic River. A small parking area is just on the west side of the bridge. Do be careful as this parking is in a triangle.

The length of this covered bridge is very impressive!! We had a picnic lunch in the little adjacent park. You can drive through - one lane.

Was close by and decided to take a diversion. This was well worthwhile. It was a fine early evening so the river views were glorious and the covered bridge was a good example of the New England bridges.
