Header Challenge - Bridges

Bridges was my choice for the theme this week. Loy's Station bridge is one of three historic covered bridges in Frederick County. It was originally built around 1860, reinforced with steel beams and center pier in the 1930's, rehabilitated in 1976, and rebuilt after a fire in 1994. Much of the work to rebuild was done by volunteers. It was damaged again last October, but quickly repaired.

You can almost hear an echo when looking into that header pic!

Excellent theme this week Lew... so glad to see you've shown one of those covered bridges I only get to see in films... there really is something special about them.

I love covered bridges. Your images are so neat. (I've actually never seen a covered bridge in person!!)
