Winter Escape in Vermont

As part of an ongoing project to photograph covered bridges, my travels took me to Manchester, VT. Below you can enjoy a slideshow of images I recently made. I fear that one day covered bridges will all be replaced by open steel bridges. Every time I lay my eyes upon these wonders, my mind is transported to an older and slower time. In my mind's eye a horse drawn carriage crosses through the bridge and gallops off into the distance. If I cross this bridge on foot, will I time travel into the past before cars roared and dominated the streets like an episode of the twilight zone gone wrong? I was brave enough for the challenge. Perhaps you too will cross that bridge.
