Bedford's Bridges

A week ago we were in Bedford County, PA. We arrived too late in the afternoon to visit the museum so we checked into the Quality Inn and drove off to sample the covered bridge tour.
Unfortunately the weather had turned rainy so our photo ops were limited. In a way, the rain was appropriate because the main reason bridges were covered was to protect them from rain and snow, which could warp and rot the wooden boards.

There are many covered bridges in Pennsylvania, and I noticed that a lot of them look alike. I liked Cuppett Bridge, shown below, because it was distinctively different.
