Covered Bridge Skywatch

The Eldean Bridge in Piqua OH was built in 1860 and named because early farmers used the bridge to carry grain to the Eldean Mill. The appearance and structure of the bridge have changed little from when it was built, although it was repaired and restored in 2005.

Lovely lush green and blue sky.

Love the covered bridge, Carol! And how beautifully green -- which I'm sure will be disappearing before much longer! Gorgeous sky for a backdrop!

Have a great weekend!

Hi Carol,
I like the lines on this old bridge. They built them to last in those days, didn't they? If you're coming to the mountains next week, bring warm clothes. It's snowing in Breck today and was 18 degrees this morning. Of course, this can change by next week.

Great shot. There's something so romantic to me about covered bridges.

Your sky looks like mine today. The bridge is pretty, that red is my favorite for bridges and barns, if they have to have paint, that is!

I loved covered bridges. There's not much around these parts and I hope to someday visit the ones on the other coast.

Have a great week.

Is this still open for vehicular traffic or only foot traffic?

You sure have a lot of interesting subjects in your part of the world. I have thought it would be fun to collect covered bridges but we have few in California so it would mean a lot of travel. A project for the future, perhaps.

What a great shot.

Picture-postcard-esque (I think I just made up that word)

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Carol and thank you for your visit at Benedict Notes. Holy Father is a continual surprise to me. Did you know that his brother Msgr. Georg Ratzinger is a great musician. Here's a link:

Music is very strong in their family.

I love this bridge. We are seeing a lot of bridges in the New England and New York gettign the attention that they need.
