Great link, Thanks :twothumbs

I see that website is lacking, though.

No HHRs

I should take my SS out to Lancaster County, PA and take pics with all the covered bridges out there.

Second Covered Bridge Hunt Part 1

S-turn through a bridge in Lancaster, Ma.
There's a few cars per minute thru there so my friend Mike was spotting for me.



Cruising down The Mohawk Trail in Northern Mass.
Some poor slob in a blue HHR got stuck behind a camera-crazy slowpoke in an SS



Had to take a few Rock Star shots...





...at Ashuelot Bridge in Winchester, NH



I really like picture frame shots.





Warning! I brake for Historic Markers!





And look at the little park next to it that you can't see from the road.
Now that's sweet.



We stopped at Martinsville Bridge in Hartland, Vt on the way up to Granite State Harley Davidson in Lebanon, NH



We drank lots of coffee...



Lull's Brook is loud and raging on it's way to The Connecticut River.



Did I mention I like picture frames?

Second Covered Bridge Hunt Part 2

HHR SS wearing a hat



Meriden/Mill Bridge in Plainfield, NH









Deep Gorge - No Diving!











We drove through Hell Hollow on the way to Blow-Me-Down Bridge in Plainfield, NH
Saw four huge whitetail deer romping in the yard past the bridge. Awesome.



A ghost seems to be approaching my wagon



Grand finale at dusk
Cornish-Windsor Bridge spanning across the Connecticut River from NH to Vermont
Standing in NH and looking through the bridge at Vermont



It was already dark but I took a few pix anyway.
I had to adjust the gamma so it's kind of grainy.

Well, this bridge is not from out East, but back here in WI. This was the last functional covered bridge here in the state and it was retired back in 1966, I think it was... I'll have to look at the sign again! It is about 2 miles from my place.



I have more pics of some of my other rides near it, but will have to do some searching. It is one of my favorite places to take pictures.
