Two Vermont Bridges
On my way home from taking my daughter to an airport in the wee hours of the morning, I took a back road as a change of pace. I passed by one of Vermont’s many covered bridges, over 100, in fact. This one in South Randolph along Route 14 is one of the smaller ones.
Seeing a sign for Brookfield and its floating bridge, I turned onto Route 65. Although I remember driving across it myself when the bridge was open, it has been closed to traffic for several years due to safety concerns. It is in need of repair. As far as I know, people still use it recreationally, and next to the bridge the little town of Brookfield hosts an ice harvest every year. I have never been to one and had hoped to go this past January, but I missed it. I love Vermont’s quaintness and nostalgia.
