This historic bridge is a favorite subject. It's located about 5 miles from my house in a beautiful canyon. It is, I believe, the only serviving three leveled covered bridge left in the country. I don't usually toot my own horn but a version of this photo recently was selected to grace the cover of a local home and garden magazine.




Here is the crop that made the cover.

I think tooting your horn is justified in this case. Well done!

Love these covered bridges. Haven't done any yet but just waiting for the right time.

Thank you Selvin. One bit of trivia concerning this birgde to share. If you have ever seen the 1956 Gary Cooper movie, Friendly Persuasion, there is a brief shot of this brigde in a sceene where Gary Cooper is racing his buggy to church and they cross this brigde.

Beautiful shot of the bridge. The composition is excellent. I am curious what you mean by three-level bridge. I can see three different roof heights but what is going on inside?

Selvin, if you ever come to Portland, we can spend a day touring several covered bridges in the area.

Thank you Cal.
Yes, the three levels of the roof is what I was referring to. I have included a picture of the inside of the bridge. I was standing directly under the point where the roof line rises up. In the distance you can just make out where the roof decends again.
Thanks for your comments.
Steve

Very nice, Steve.

Do you know what the purpose of the three level roof is? Or, is it just for show?
