Have you seen this bridge?
The Landscape Change Database is full of photos that have been described, keyworded, and located. However, there are some photos – like the one above – that come to us without a lot of information. If you know where this bridge is let us know. If you have a story about it, even better! We love to hear how structures on the landscape have affected Vermonter’s lives.
The town of Dummerston didn’t have many photos that would be easy to locate and retake but the journey to finding them was fun and filled with wildlife!
A cute chipmunk said hello while we re-photographed a covered bridge in West Dummerston. As we ambled down the banks of the West River to get a few shots we found a happy, hopping hoard of little frogs that blended with the rocks. I also saw the biggest, scariest, coolest riparian insect I have ever encountered, content to sit on a large rock in the afternoon sun.
I think my favorite part, though, was re-photographing a sketch of a metal truss bridge. As someone who has tried their hand at art I can appreciate the skill behind such an accurate drawing! If you’d like to learn more about this bridge just click on the photo.
