Covered Bridge




This is the Office Covered Bridge in Westfir, Oregon. The bridge is really great. It is lighted for the holiday season, and there is a bridge lighting on the 1st Saturday in December. It was built to allow loaded log trucks to travel thru to a mill, so it is very tall. It has a sidewalk to allow workers to walk thru safely. This sidewalk is rare on the covered bridges here in Oregon. The mill is long gone. Now there is a rest area, picnic shelter, trailhead and information kiosk on the other side. There are several more bridges in Lane County. This one is close to my home and I drive by it often. Very iconic of another era, special, and fun.
