This is the Dahlenburg Bridge. It was built over an abandoned mill-race on Ames Creek in Sweet Home, Oregon in 1989 by a high school construction class. It is next to the Weddle Bridge, a historic covered bridge. You can read moreabout the Dahlenburg Bridge here:

According to a local resident, both bridges will get repaired and re-painted sometime this summer.

I remember that little bridge. I was there a few years ago and got a number of shots of the "child" and it's "father". I had completely forgotten about it until I saw your picture.

Very nice picture. It has a kind of storybook quality to it. The only thing I might have done differently would be to move left a little bit and frame the picture as you have it. That would eliminate the red building on the left without cropping too close to the fence railing.

Thanks Cal,

I agree on the framing but moving to the right would include a backyard with numerous "blue tarps". I could have zoomed in some, I guess. Here's a slightly different perspective taken the same day. I still plan to go look for the small bridge you mentioned in Silverton to see if it was made by the same builder.

If you are referring to the Gallon-House bridge, it is a couple miles northwest of Silverton. The is a small "covered bridge" right in the heart of downtown Silverton. It is metal with one side open. When I saw it, there were tables on the open side. The bridge is for pedestrian traffic only. It is easy to miss this one. It is hidden behind some downtown buildings, in a small city park.

I like your second picture of the Dahlenburg bridge better than the first. The perspective is better and no offending background buildings. The tree adds a lot.
