Jumping At Covered Bridges- Vermont, USA

Taftsville Covered Bridge
While visiting Vermont I figured it would be nice to stop and visit a few covered bridges. There wasn’t a lot else going on so this made for a fun reason to drive around. Many of the bridges have a distinct look and style to them and I figured they made for a good place to do some jumps.

Covered bridges are a popular attraction in Vermont. There are around 100 throughout the state. The bridges come in various colors, sizes & can be open or closed on the sides. They are covered to protect the bridges from the elements during the winter.

Other side of Taftsville Bridge
Many covered bridges were badly damaged by Hurricane Irene in August 2011 including both bridges shown in this post. I am not sure if the bridges will be repaired or replaced. From what I read, the Taftsville Bridge was taken apart to be repaired and the fate of the Queeche Bridge was not decided as of yet.
