An odd thing, peculiar to the US. Why do you cover bridges?

Funnily enough my first reaction was why cover the bridge... I like the way the fence leads the eye into the bridge....john

Thanks for your comments. This bridge was built in 1816. All covered bridges were made of wood so to protect them from deteriorating, they were covered. Also they look like barns so cattle are not affraid to cross over and horses can not see over the sides, startling them. The Amish still use horse and bugges as their only transportation, so most are still covered. In the winter snow is pushed inside so the horse and sleds could slide thru easily.There are over 200 covered bridges just in PA. alone. Hope this helps.

It makes sense when you explain it. Thanks for taking the time to do it. Viv

Thank you. This was my first attempt on covered bridges. I was camping at the time and saw a map with all the bridges. I decided to give it a try. I picked the worst morning, rain at night, morning fog. Thus the reason for a side shot with no sky. JohnP.
