Lancaster Covered Bridge

Lancaster bridge6571At some point in every winter you’ve just got to accept it for the cold, sloppy inconvenience that it is and move on. For me that point was today; it was too cold and windy to go to the bog, not that the birds would feel like cooperating anyway. As I looked out at the vast rolling hills behind Bog HQ all covered with a fresh layer of snow, it occurred to me: find a snow covered covered bridge. Wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right… find a snowy covered bridge? Yeah, find a snowy covered bridge-scape. That’s better. So I packed up my gear and headed to Carroll County and the Lancaster Covered Bridge. Built in 1872 by the Wheelock Bridge Co., this bridge spans 132.9 feet across the Wildcat Creek. And it photographs real good in the snow.Lancaster bridge6584a
