If you have been following along for the past few days, you know I went on an aimless road trip last week during the snowstorm. This was the view when I first got to Emily’s Covered Bridge. I was so happy!. Years of waiting for just the right conditions finally paid off. I think this was the best picture of the whole aimless road trip.

So… I’m driving up the road to Emily’s. I’m looking at the trees and the road and wondering what the bridge is going to look like. When the bridge was in view, I had to stop and just stare. Years of waiting have finally come to and end. I hit pay dirt!.  Happy was an understatement.

Gold Brook Covered Bridge, also known as Stowe Hollow Bridge or Emily’s Bridge, is a small wooden covered bridge in the town of Stowe, Lamoille County, Vermont, carrying Covered Bridge Road over Gold Brook. Built in 1844, it is the only 19th-century covered bridge in the state built using wooden Howe trusses and carrying a public roadway. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
