This is a lovely book. It reminds me of being at a family cottage in the country where there was a covered bridge nearby. It was always a family tradition to visit the covered bridge. running through the bridge and yelling to hear the echoes! Theses photographs are wonderful. It is a lovely book to spend an afternoon looking at all the wonderful bridges across the country. it alos makes me want to visit many of them. A definite goodread!
