Another View of Our Local Covered Bridge

Meems Bottom Covered Bridge is on Wissler Road just off Route 11, the Valley Pike. Some sources claim that it was burnt during the Civil War but others say that no, that was another bridge a little way downstream where the Valley Pike crossed the North Fork.

My mother was a fan of covered bridges and old mills, so that's one reason that I go out of my way to photograph them. Which reminds me that some years ago my photojournalism teacher remarked that I took a lot of pictures showing human interaction with the natural world. That became my homework assignment for a portfolio of slides.
