On the hunt for covered bridges

This entry was posted by on Wednesday, 23 February, 2011 at

Along with my love for lighthouses, I also have a soft spot for covered bridges. To my enjoyment, Oregon provides quite a few of both!

Call it an excuse to get out of the house, or an excuse to take my camera on a drive, Saturday’s sun made it the perfect day to get out and see some covered bridges in their wooden glory.

Using the information over at http://www.oregon.com/covered_bridges and armed with my GPS, Jean and I took a drive Saturday afternoon in search of as many covered bridges as we could pack into a day. All told, we got to ten of them within the Willamette valley, over the course of 270 miles. (To get to the rest will take a bit more planning and strategic execution as they are now outside a quick afternoon’s trip.)

The images below are just a few of the best photos from the day. All are relatively untouched as no cropping was done, but I did adjust the levels minimally as I tended to over expose due to the bright sunshine.

    0746 is my fave. Love the colors–very Dagobah + Hobbiton. 😉

    Jean looks nice too, natch.

  2. Jean always looks nice 😉
    And yes, I love 0746 as well… had I not been paying attention to things OTHER than covered bridges as well, I’d have never noticed it… even though the structure was less than 50 feet away from the bridge and easily accessible; it just blended in so well.
