    these gems are becoming extinct by the day it seems.

    what an excellent find...you caught a very reminiscent feel in them both.

    Thanks guys.

    Ray they coverd these bridges in an attempt to extend there life by protecting the wooden trusses from the elements.

    That first shot just RAWKS!!! There's only one left in Ontario, near St. Jacobs. I've been meaning to post a pic of it...maybe your post will spur me to do it. Where was this one? You really took a beautiful picture of it.

    Thanks Chiller, Antarctican. This one was just oustside Sussex, New Brunswick. There must be at least a dozen here in NB.
    .......

    Wow, I decided to check to see how many there are and it turns out that there are still 64 covered bridges in use through out NB. Most are within a few hours drive of where I live. Trying to get all of them would make an interesting photo project some weekend.

    My photo is of the Ward's creek bridge, built in 1909.
