During my recent Vermont covered bridges photographic tour, I came across one of the four covered bridges near Woodstock, Vermont – the Taftsville Covered Bridge.
The Taftsville Covered Bridge was originally constructed in 1836, and is considered one of the oldest surviving covered bridges in the Green Mountain State. It was severely damaged in 2011 due to the effects of Hurricane Irene, but it was repaired and restored and reopened by 2013.
The one thing about Taftsville, though … there’s really no dedicated touristy parking available. There’s some side-street parking – which isn’t really safe – and a couple of spots that are actually the entranceway to a municipal plant.
So after I got the shots I wanted …
I parked my Chevrolet next to the bridge, and squeezed off a Dracourage selfie.
Yeah, I’m allowed to pose my car in various locales and take photos while doing so. Five and a half years of ownership with that hot little Chevy. Works for me.
